Unchained Recipe Contest - Black Bean Burrito

I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an “add a little of this and that” person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements!
