When the beans begin to cook through a bit and soften, use the bottom of the fork to mash the beans. Keep things chunky though!

Lay out a warmed (oven or stovetop) whole-grain tortilla. First place the lettuce towards the bottom, then line the bean, rice, and cheese mixtures parallel to one another as you work the piling up towards the center of the tortilla. At last, top with tomatoes and avocado (unpictured).

Roll and slice the burrito in half and at an angle.
