black bean burrito bowls (rice cooker)

Print Friendly

Easiest dinner ever! It cooks up in one pot (the rice cooker or slow cooker) making cleanup a breeze.  It will take about 45-50 minutes in a rice cooker, and can also be made in a slow cooker at 4 hours on high, but you will need to double the liquid and add extra water as needed (about 1/2 cup) in the last hour. Not too spicy & family-friendly, you can eat this straight out of a bowl or roll it up in a tortilla for a portable burrito. The rice mixture would pair well with cooked chicken, shrimp, or eggs, but also provides complete vegetarian protein on its own (so no need to mess with it! )

  1. Hey Wendy
    Happy to say I am still following the program I started in May and have lost 16 lbs now just by changing my diet.  Would like to make this recipe but I don’t have a rice cooker.  Any other suggestions?
    Thanks
    Jill

    1. Hi Jill – First of all, congratulations on your continued success! Do you have a crockpot/slow cooker? If so, this will work on high for a few hours I think… just check the consistency of your rice after 2 hours or so – if it’s still tough, keep cooking it!:)

    1. I’m so glad it was a hit, Joanne! Can you tell me on what setting and for how long you cooked it in your crockpot? I’m collecting data, all crockpots vary 😉
