** NOTE – The ‘how-to’ video I made was scaled to 1/2 the recipe. **
All ingredients I used in the video were Organic.
4 cups Brown Rice (I use long grain, but any variety will do – just not instant)
4 cups Water (if using a rice cooker, otherwise follow directions for stove-top preparation)
1/2 cup Olive Oil
3 – 4 Cups Salsa (pureed)
2 cans Black Olives (minced with the brine/juice from one can)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (season to taste – be careful not to oversalt)
4 cups Mozzarella Cheese – Shredded
4 cans Whole Black Beans – Drained & Rinsed (16 oz. Cans)
4 cans Whole Pinto Beans – Drained & Rinsed (16 oz. Cans)
4 cans Refried Black Beans – (16 oz. Cans)
4 cans Refried Pinto Beans – (16 oz. Cans)
72 Large Flour Tortillas
- Take Brown Rice water to Rice Cooker – Turn On and let cook until done.
- While Rice is Cooking: In Large Bowl, combine Olive Oil, Salsa, Olives, Olive Juice, Salt, and Cheese then Set-Aside.
- In Gigantic Bowl, combine all 16 Cans of Refried and Whole Beans – Mix Well, then Set-Aside – Be sure to rinse the Whole Black and Pinto Beans before adding.
- When Rice is Ready: Immediately add the hot rice to Large Bowl with the Salsa, Olive & Cheese Mixture. Mix well – You will notice the mixture becoming a cheesy/gooey mix due to the heat of the rice.
- Add Cheese mixture from Large Bowl into the Gigantic Bean Mix Bowl – Mix Well.
- Stuffing the Tortillas: Lay down approx. 12″ square piece of plastic wrap, and place tortilla on it. Scoop approx. 3 Tablespoons of Burrito Mixture into the center of a Tortilla and roll into a burrito (don’t over-stuff the tortilla). Roll the Burrito up in the plastic wrap and fold ends over. Repeat until all Burritos have been made.
- Freezing: Wrap Burritos individually into plastic wrap. Take 10 wrapped Burritos and wrap together again with plastic wrap for easy storage and extra protection from freezer burn. Freeze for up to 2-3 Months.
- Re-Heating: Remove Burrito from plastic wrap and roll into parchment or waxed paper. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until completely heated and serve!
Yield: 72 Individual Burritos
Other Options: If you don’t care to use tortillas, feel free to freeze the bean mixture in plastic wrap or containers and serve rolled in a green leaf lettuce or collard greens.
