- 2 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious 100 Calorie Tortillas
- 6 ounces strip steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2 tbsp instant brown rice
- 1/4 cup prepared fresh salsa
- 1/4 cup water
- Juice from 1 lime, freshly squeezed
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 2 tbsp prepared guacamole
- 1/4 cup red onions, thinly sliced

- 2 tbsp reduced fat sour cream
- Combine salsa and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in rice, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
- Stir in beans, return to a simmer and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, sprinkle steak with salt & pepper. Spray a medium skillet with non-fat cooking spray and set over medium-high heat. Add steak and onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
- To assemble, divide the steak & onions among the tortillas and squeeze ½ of the lime over each. Then top with equal amounts of sour cream, guacamole, cilantro and the rice mixture. Roll each tortilla up into a burrito.
