Ingredients

1 small onion , chopped
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes , drained
2 cloves garlic , peeled
1/4 cup chopped, fresh cilantro
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
a pinch of sugar
6 large flour tortillas
1 pound ground beef sirloin
2 cups cooked, white rice
3/4 cup non-fat sour cream
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Cooking Instructions

For the salsa:
1. Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, adjust the heat so that the mixture simmers and cook until 1/2 of the liquid evaporates, about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool.

2. Pour the mixture into a blender and puree. Chill.
(This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.)

For the burritos:
3. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

4. Wrap the tortillas in foil and warm them in the oven for about 10 minutes.

5. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over a medium heat until cooked through. Break apart the beef as it browns into small pieces. Drain off any fat and season with salt and pepper.

7. Meanwhile, heat the cooked rice in the microwave.

8. Everyone can create their own burritos with beef, rice, salsa and sour cream. Garnish with extra salsa, sour cream and cilantro leaves if desired.
