Beef Burrito with Pepper Jack Cheese and Black Beans

½ pound ground beef sirloin

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 cup chunky salsa, divided

2 cups cooked brown or white rice

6 (9-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas

Sliced green onion, including green tops

In medium non-stick skillet, brown ground beef and garlic over medium heat; (break beef mixture up into smaller chunks with a spoon). Drain fat and stir in ½ cup of the salsa; set aside. Spread ⅓ cup of rice on center of a tortilla, leaving a ½-inch border. Scatter about 2 tablespoons of beans and 1½ tablespoons of corn over rice. Spread ⅓ cup of the beef mixture and ¼ cup of the cheese over corn. Top with 2 teaspoons of the salsa and a few pieces of green onion. Fold in two opposite edges of tortilla one inch each and roll up. Place, seam side down, on microwave-safe dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place burritos in a microwave oven and heat 1 minute or until heated through. Serve with remaining salsa.
