Quick Bean and Rice Tacos/Burritos

This is one of my go to quick meals when I don't have something else planned. I often fix it for lunch since it comes together so quickly. It has the added bonus of being very healthy.

‎1 Cup water or chicken broth
1 can drained black beans or 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans if you use dried
1 bell pepper (whatever color you want)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 cup salsa
1 cup instant brown rice

Combine everything but rice in a medium sauce pan and bring to boil on medium-high heat. Once boiling, add rice and stir. Bring back to boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes or until moisture is mostly absorbed. Spoon into tortillas and top with standard burrito or taco fixings.
