To make the burritos
Warm each tortilla in a dry skillet over a medium heat.
Move tortillas to a separate plate. Fill each tortilla with a scoop of brown rice, black beans, guacamole, and plantains. Fold in the sides and roll into a burrito. Serve right away.
If you've never fried plantains from scratch, check out this handy sweet fried plantains guide for useful pictures.
For the rice, you can either make it from scratch, or reheat frozen brown rice in the microwave. I buy organic frozen rice in packages from Trader Joe's, which comes 3 to a pack. It's a convenient timesaver.
For the tortillas, you'll need standard-sized ones, not the extra large burrito-sized tortillas.
You may have more guacamole than is needed for the burritos themselves. But all the more reason to grab some tortilla chips and scoop up the rest!
