    Method

    1. Put the rice in a medium saucepan with 600ml cold water and a pinch of salt if you like. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down low, cover and gently simmer for about 20 mins until all the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and leave for another 10 mins undisturbed. Stir the rice and add the coriander and lime juice.

    2. For the black beans, heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the garlic, chipotle, cumin, sugar and vinegar, and cook everything for 1 min. Tip in the beans and tomatoes, give everything a stir and simmer, uncovered, for 20 mins until thickened.

    3. For the salsa and guacamole, mix the tomatoes with the onion, coriander, lime juice and seasoning. Tip half the salsa into another bowl and mash the avocados into it to make guacamole. Wrap everything up together in warmed wholemeal tortillas topped with natural yogurt, lime juice and grated cheese, if you like.

    These tasted amazing! I agree with the fact they make more than 4 portions. More like 6-8 as the rice and beans are filling. Definitely making these again

    Absolutely love this recipe, especially the Guacamole! I didn't bother with the Chipotle the second time round and much preferred it!

    Brilliant recipe (should have way more than 6 ratings!) I find this recipe does enough for 8 burritos. If doing it for less people reduce the rice to 75g per person. I don't have cider vinegar so I left it out.

    Delicious! I think that 300g of rice is too much for the amount of black bean mixture this recipe makes. The chipotle gives the burrito a delicious smoky taste. Will definitely be making again. I reckon I could eat leftovers cold for lunch!

    We like this and it feels pretty healthy too. Happy days. I'll give the running a miss, if it's all the same with you ;)

    Healthy, tasty & quick to make! Highly recommended. Only change I made was to use microwave rice, just to save a bit of time.
