Ingredients:  
4 large whole wheat tortillas
1 c. brown rice
1 3/4 c. chicken stock
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion, diced
1 jalapeno, diced (keep some of the ribs and seeds for more heat)
1 t. cumin
1 15oz. can black beans, rinsed

2 c. cooked chicken, shredded
1 c. shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
lettuce, chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Cook brown rice according to package directions in chicken stock instead of water. While rice is cooking, saute onion and jalapeno in olive oil until softened. Stir in cumin. Add black beans and fire-roasted tomatoes (you may want to drain a little so filling isn't too juicy). Add chicken, salt & pepper to taste and heat through.
Heat tortillas in oven, microwave, or blister over open flame on stove turning until warm. Layer brown rice, chicken & black bean filling, cheese, lettuce, cilantro, and sour cream. Roll up like a burrito and serve with fresh pico de gallo, guacamole and tortilla chips. Depending on how full you make these, you should get 4-6 large burritos.

This is very healthy and VERY tasty meal! I should give Rachael Ray most of the credit, but I made some changes and call it my own. Enjoy!
