Mamacita's Gourmet Smothered Burritos

When we were in California last summer, we had some yummy, huge burritos at a little place called Jalisco's Gourmet Burritos. We liked them so much that I had to invent my own after we got home. We stuff flour tortillas with black beans, cilantro rice, salsa chicken, and cheese. I added the smothered part myself, because I like my burrito a little more moist, but you could leave off the enchilada sauce if you prefer it that way.
Mamacita's Gourmet Smothered Burritos
10 large flour tortillas
2 cups long-grain white rice, uncooked
1 tsp salt
1 tb. lime juice
1/4 c. fresh cilantro leaves
1 large can refried black beans (or just smash some regular canned beans)
2 chicken breasts, cooked
1/4 c. salsa
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 can green enchilada sauce (optional)
Cook your rice according to package directions, adding salt, lime juice and cilantro with water. Chop cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces, mix with salsa. On each tortilla, layer some rice, black beans, chicken and cheese. Roll up tightly. Lay in large greased baking dish, pour enchilada sauce over burritos, if desired. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
