  1. In a saucepan, combine water and rice and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and let it simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid is fully absorbed, which should take about 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and allow it to melt. Mix in the chili powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper, cloves, and nutmeg, stirring frequently, and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Next, add the black beans and tomato sauce to the skillet and bring the mixture to a simmer. Lower the heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro, letting it sit until the cilantro wilts, which should take about 5 minutes.
  4. To assemble, fill warm tortillas with the bean mixture and cooked rice.


  • – For a vegan version, omit the cheese or use a dairy-free alternative.
    – You can add other toppings like chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, or sliced avocado for extra flavor.
    – Leftover burritos can be wrapped in foil and reheated in the oven.
