    1       c            Cooked long grain brown rice
   15       oz           Can pinto beans
    1       c            Shredded iceberg lettuce
    1       c            Coarsely chopped tomato
    1       md           Red bell pepper
    1       sm           Onion
      1/4   c            Cilantro, chopped

   Stem, seed, and coarsely chop bell pepper.  Chop onion
   and cilantro leaves.
   In a 2-3 quart microwave safe bowl mix rice, beans,
   1/2 cup lettuce, 1/2 cup tomato, 1/2 of the bell
   pepper, 1/2 of the onion, and 1/2 of the cilantro.
   Cover and cook on full power for 3 minutes.  Stir,
   cover, and cook until hot throughout, 1 to 2 minutes
   longer. Stir in remaining vegetables.  Spoon into
   individual bowls and garnish with salsa, yogurt, and
   salt to taste. NOTE:  While the recipe says to spoon
   into bowls, my wife a nd I love to eat this in flour
   tortillas, wrapping it up like a burrito!
