This gluten-free, vegetarian burrito has all the delicious ingredients of a burrito but without the tortilla. This Mexican dish is made with black beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, rice, cheese, and plenty of cilantro.

For the spices, I used the traditional chili powder, cumin and garlic. To serve, you can add salsa, fresh cilantro and or sour cream.
