  • ½ cup fresh salsa
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup brown rice
  • 15 oz black beans preferably low-sodium, rinsed
  • 12 oz strip steak trimmed and thinly sliced crosswise
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 4 8 inch tortillas preferably whole-wheat
  • ½ cup sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup guacamole dip
  • 2 tbsp cilantro coarsely chopped


  • Combine salsa and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in rice, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in beans, return to a simmer and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, sprinkle steak with pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
