Preparation

Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms to the dry pan and saute for 5 minutes, stirring occassionally. When the mushrooms begin to give off moisture, stir in the baby spinach leaves. Cook until the spinach has wilted, 2-3 minutes. Add the rice and black beans and cook until warmed through, then stir in the Monterey Jack cheese until it melts. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Warm the tortillas, either in the microwave, in the oven (wrapped in foil), or by warming each side for 30 seconds in a hot frying pan. Then fill with the mushroom-spinach mixture, roll into a burrito, and enjoy!

    Skip the tortilla! That would make a great side just on it's own.
