Deconstructed Burrito with Spinach, Corn, and Black Beans

It’s no secret that I could eat Mexican food for every meal for the rest of my life. Nonetheless, the idea of flour tortillas (no matter how delicious) makes me feel over-full, not to mention the amount of white flour involved. This simple recipe eliminates the tortillas and instead, calls for brown rice (a much…
