I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Bean & Rice Wraps

This is a great wrap to make.  Very easy, tasty, and healthy.   I make them, wrap them up and freeze them individually.  They are great for lunch or a light dinner.  Defrost and heat up in the microwave.

(makes 12-14)

*1 cup uncooked white or brown rice
*2 cups waters
*2 (15 ounce) cans black beans
*1 (15.5 ounce) can pinto beans
*1 cup whole kernel corn
*1/2 cup diced tomatoes with green chiles
*16 (10-inch flour tortillas)
*1 cup shredded pepper-jack cheese
*1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/2 teaspoon cumin
*1 teaspoon chili powder

~Combine rice and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil.
~Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes for white rice and 40 for brown rice.
~Remove from heat and cool.
~Place pinto beans & black beans into a colander and rinse.
~Add corn & diced tomatoes with chilies, and gently mix.
~Transfer to a large bowl.
~Mix in rice and cheese.
~Sprinkle in salt, cumin & chili powder, mix well.
~Divide mixture evenly among the flour tortillas.
~Roll each one up.
~Heat in microwave or wrap individually and freeze.
~Defrost & heat in microwave.

`substitute water with chicken stock.  It will give your rice even more flavor.
