Love burritos but hate the cost and lines? Here’s a quick, easy, and cost friendly option that can be made in the comfort of your dorm. This quick meal can be served in a bowl or in a burrito, whichever you prefer!
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Serving: 2

You will need:

1 packet of uncle bens 90 second rice, flavor of your choosing
Can of beans of your choosing
Shredded cheese of your choosing
2 tortillas (optional)

To prepare:

Tear the top of Uncle Ben’s Rice packet in the microwave for 60 seconds. While in the microwave, slightly open your can of beans and drain the liquid from the can. Once all liquid is removed, keeping only a small portion of the can open, fill the can with water and shake to rinse beans. Drain the can again to then open can fully. Split the rice packet into two bowls or mugs (whichever you have) and do the same for the beans. Add cheese to top off the bowl/mug and place in the microwave for 30-50 seconds. Cover the bowl/mug to avoid mess. After microwaving, add sliced avocado and a spoonful of salsa.

To serve:

Depending on preference, either enjoy this treat in your bowl/mug or split evenly between two tortillas and wrap to create a burrito. For left overs, place burrito in aluminum foil. For bowls/mugs use either plastic wrap or foil to cover the top. Both options can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
