Bean Burritos (Vegetarian)

1/2 cup instant brown rice
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, rinsed & drained
1 cup no-salt-added diced tomatoes
4 oz fat free cream cheese
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp oregano
1/3 cup fat free shredded cheddar
Jarred or fresh salsa
8 whole wheat tortillas (I use xtreme)

Cook rice according to package directions. In a large skillet, saute peppers & onions in oil until tender. In a large bowl, mash beans. Add the beans, tomatoes, cream cheese & seasonings to the skillet. Cook and stir until heated through. Stir in rice.

Spoon 1/8 filling into each tortilla, top with a spoonful (1-2 tbsp) salsa. Roll into burritos. Top with cheese & Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.

These were easy and FAST! My husband is a meat-eater, and isn't a fan of any meal that doesn't include meat. When he asked what was for dinner, and I said "Bean burritos", his response was "oh, no meat?". He took his first bite and said "WOW! These are good!" So, I say they were a success!
