Quick Hot Burrito
Diabetic Adaptable***

We all do this. We want lunch or dinner and nothing's there. Empty refrigerator, lack of desire to create exciting "cuisine," so we start fishing for what we do have and come up with a concoction that may never appear again. Except for this one. The magic here was having everything on hand. And get this, most of it the ingredients came from a package or a can or a jar. All the wrong things, right? Not this time. They were no-salt-added and unsalted and that make this one a perfect quick burrito.
