Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Place the tortillas in a covered baking dish and set aside. To prepare the rice and bean filling, heat the oil in a large skillet and sauté the garlic and onions for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the red peppers and sauté another 2 minutes. Mix in the rice and the beans. Cover and reduce the flame to medium-low. Let cook about 5 minutes until hot. Place the tortillas in the oven and heat until warm. While the tortillas are warming up prepare the salsa. Place all the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Remove the warm tortillas from the oven and the rice from the burner. Place equal amounts of the rice and bean mixture on each tortilla. Spoon a tablespoon or two of salsa over the rice and beans. Garnish with lettuce and roll up the tortillas. Slice each burrito in half and serve.
