Bachelor Pad Burritos

What you need: 

1 14 oz can black beans
4 oz. frozen spinach
4 oz. frozen sweet corn
4 oz. frozen peppers (I use Melange a Trois from Trader Joes)
1/2 cup brown rice - cooked
whole wheat tortillas

What you do: 

The two main advantages of this dish are that it is quick and you have to wash only three items when you are done: a pot, a spoon, and a plate. Pour the entire can of beans, with the juice, into the pot. Bring the beans to a boil. Add the vegetables and rice. These items should soak up most of the liquid. Cook for a few minutes until the water has mostly evaporated. Remove from heat. Take a tortilla and throw it on a lit burner. (You have to have a gas stove for this to work, of course.) Flip the tortilla several times until it is nice and hot. Put your tortilla on your plate, add your black bean concoction, add salsa to taste, fold and eat. Whatever beans you don't finish can be refrigerated and reheated later. No oil, no lard, no cholesterol. High in sodium, though.
