salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup slivered almonds

What you do: 

1. Saute onion, garlic and bell pepper in oil until softened. Stir in beans, basil and organo, almonds, salt and pepper.
2. Over medium-high heat, warm tortillas one at a time, flipping once. Once tortilla is hot (working fairly quickly), spoon rice, then bean mixture into the center of the tortilla.

This is a great recipe!  My (non-cooking) husband wanted one dish he could make that would wow friends and I think he has found it with this one.  He used regular (brown) rice and then added hot salsa to the finished burrito.  The texture and the flavors are wonderful.

Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
