For Salsa Crema:

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

For Burritos:

  1. Combine rice and beans in a bowl. Add salt to taste.
  2. Place half of the rice/bean mixture into the middle of each tortilla. Make sure tortillas are soft. If not, warm them in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

  3. Place half of the sliced avocado on top of the rice and beans.
  4. Fold sides of the tortilla in, then roll tortilla packing in the filling into a nice tight burrito closed on all sides.
  5. Place seam side down into a frying pan. I did not use or need any non stick surface. Cook on medium low for about 5 minutes, or until seam is sealed and tortilla is a deep brown. Burrito should come off easily, if it is sticking then it needs to cook longer. Check periodically being careful not to burn it. If you accidentally burn it, don’t worry, it is easy to use a serrated knife to scrape off the burned surface.
  6. Flip burrito to the other side and brown again, about 5 minutes.

  7. Once fully grilled, place burritos on a plate and drizzle Salsa Crema over the top. 

  8. Garnish with corn and chopped cilantro if desired. Devour and remember to breathe.
