5 minPrep


  • 1 pouch Daring Cajun Pieces, frozen
  • 6 tsp vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 large shallot, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ cup uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 4 oz can mild diced green chiles
  • 1 ¾ tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce

Step 1

Place a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp vegetable oil and swirl to coat. When the oil is hot, add the shallot and garlic. Sauté until the shallot is translucent but hasn’t taken on any color — about 3-4 minutes. Add the rice, green chile, 1 c water, and ½ tsp salt, stirring until just combined. Allow the rice to come to a gentle simmer, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until all water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat, and allow the rice to steam, covered, while the remaining ingredients are prepared.

Step 2

Place a large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tsp vegetable oil, and swirl to coat. Add the sliced red and green bell peppers and ½ tsp salt, and sauté until completely tender and just beginning to turn golden-brown — about 4-6 minutes. Remove to a small bowl or plate and reserve.

Step 3

Add the remaining 2 tsp vegetable oil to the same skillet, swirling to coat, and turn heat to medium-high. Add the Daring Cajun Pieces in one even layer and sear for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and golden-brown. Reserve the seared Daring Pieces on a clean plate.

Step 4

To prepare the avocado crema, add the avocado flesh to the bowl of a food processor, along with olive oil, 2 tsp lime juice, and ½ tsp salt. Blend until smooth, and reserve.

Step 5

Add the lime zest, black beans, cilantro, and ¼ tsp salt to the steamed white rice, and fluff with a fork until completely mixed.

Step 6

To assemble the burritos, microwave one tortilla in the microwave for 10 seconds, just until warm and pliable. Place the warm tortilla on a large cutting board, and spread a generous spoonful of the avocado crema all over. Top with ½ c of the black beans and rice, half of the sautéed bell peppers, half of the Daring Cajun Pieces, and a handful of shredded lettuce. Carefully wrap the burrito by tightly folding the side closest to you over the fillings, folding in the right and left sides of the tortilla, and then wrapping tightly as you roll the burrito forward.

Step 7

Repeat step 6 for the second burrito. To take your burrito on the go, wrap it tightly with foil to maintain its shape. Devour your burrito hot, warm, or at room temperature.
