Nicole's "Grilled" Burritos

Thanks to Nicole for this amazing recipe!  Today is Morgan's birthday ... and she asked for these.  Really, Nicole, AMAZING.

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cup salsa (if it's a more watery salsa, drain)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 large lime
10 pack flour tortillas
cooking spray

2 cups minute rice
2 cups boiling water
Juice of 1 1/2 limes, divided
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon non-hydrogenated margarine
1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
salt to taste

Spray skillet with cooking spray and preheat to low.  Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan.  Add the juice of one lime and two cups of minute rice.  Cover and remove from heat. 

Mix the first six ingredients together.  Warm tortillas for 30 seconds in the microwave.  Spray each side with cooking spray and fill with a large spoonful of the filling mixture.

Place seam side down in preheated skillet.  Press each burrito lightly with your spatula.

Once the burritos start to turn golden, flip and "grill" the other side.

Add the juice of the remaining 1/2 of a lime and 1/2 cup cilantro to the rice.  Stir in the cheese and add salt to taste.

Serve with your favorite chips and salsa (the rice is yummy on chips too).

Here she is!  The birthday girl ...
We all loved these little meatless burritos and will definitely be adding them to our regular menu!  We didn't even miss the meat!!
