Ingredients

  • 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 coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp reduced fat sour cream

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

    p.s. I left the cilantro out(my boys don’t like it) and used plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream!

    My daughter and I just started ww this morning I really havnt sat down and read all of it yet. i remember her saying that we can eat all the fruit we want right??
    and veggies right??
    now what about protein and starches bread past potatoes??

    • Beckie, congrats on joining ww! Yes the veggies and fruit are free to a point…they are not unlimited… fruit is tricky.while it is free in points alot of fruit has alot of sugar. We talked about this in meeting yesterday.You are suppose to get 9 servings of fruits and veggies everyday! If we did 5 veggies and 4 fruit servings we would all be good. Youre starcie veggies like corn or potatoes are not free you need to count them. hope that helps some.good luck!!

  5. these look super yummy. Luckily enough i just picked up a pack of these http://www.olemexicanfoods.com/OLEmenuTortillas.h… and they are only 1PPS per tortilla. I like em' better than the La Tortilla
