Baked Salsa Burritos



I love a good Burrito. Unfortunately my waist line does not! One of the reasons that I rarely have them. I decided to create my own low cal version and they were fantastic!

Baked Salsa Burritos
Makes 8 Burritos
WW PP=7
Cal 278, Fat 9.2g, Carbs 32g, Fiber 15.8g, Protein 25.7g

Ingredients
16 oz. lean ground sirloin (I used 93/7)
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups reduced fat Monterrey jack cheese, divided
3/4 cups fat free refried beans
1 1/2 cups salsa, divided
2 cups cooked whole grain brown rice
8 taco sized whole wheat flour tortillas (I used La Banderita High Fiber)

Brown ground beef, drain and add in chili powder, onion powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and water. Next stir in your beans, 1/2 of the cheese, 1/2 of the salsa and rice.

Spoon about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture on each tortilla.

Fold the sides and ends over filling and roll-up.

Arrange burritos in a lightly sprayed baking dish.

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and top with remaining salsa.

Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Enjoy!
