Quick Burrito Filling -- Instant Pot
to make the filling:
- ½ cup brown rice
- ½ cup dried brown lentils
- ½ cup dried black beans
- 14½ oz can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
- 16 oz prepared salsa (half for the filling, half served as a condiment)
- 3 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tsp Better Than Bouillon garlic base
- 1 tsp Better Than Bouillon vegetable base
- 2 tsp adobo sauce (check the aisle near the tortillas! YUM!)
- 2½ cup vegetable stock
- ½ tsp cumin
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
to make the burritos:
- 2 packages (10) whole wheat tortillas
- 4 roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 bunch green onion, whites and greens thinly sliced
- 8 oz vegan cheddar or mexican grated cheese
- 1 recipe Chili Mango Lime Dressing
- 1 jar 16 oz prepared salsa, sugar free
- 2 ripe avocados, diced
- ½ bunch cilantro, minced
- 1 dash TJ's Chili Lime Seasoning
Make Filling in the Instant Pot
- Put all the "filling" ingredients into the Instant Pot. Remember to reserve 1/2 the prepared salsa for a table condiment. Give them a quick stir. Secure the cover. Close the steam release valve.
- Choose the Multigrain program. Set the cook time to 60 minutes using either the "adjust" button or the “+” and “-“ minus keys. You will hear several beeps and the display will change to ON. You can step away, with full confidence your meal will be ready on time.
- Generally speaking, the Instant Pot takes about 20 minutes to pressurize before it begins your cook time. When cooking is complete, it will take about 40 minutes to depressurize. You will know it is safe to remove the cover when steam does not escape as you open the pressure release valve.
- As an extra safety precaution, before you attempt to open the pot, make it a habit to open the steam valve to open to confirm that pot has depressurized. If there is a plume of steam when you open the valve, wait for the steam to subside. Cooking is complete and your pot is ready to open.
- JUST THAT EASY! Open the pot! Your meal is hot and ready to go!
To assemble the burritos:
- Place a 12"x16" piece of parchment paper on your work surface. Add a flour tortilla, and put a 1/3 cup (80 ml) scoop of filling in the middle of the burrito.
- In the order listed, add the remaining ingredients to your burrito as desired.
- Fold up the burrito to hold the ingredients, then wrap them in parchment paper. (You may want to close the wrapping with a small piece of masking tape). Store in the freezer for up to three months. They can be reheated in the microwave from frozen, or you may choose to thaw them at room temperature before cooking them.
- If you have left over filling, you can use it straight out of the fridge. Or warm it up for a side dish.
