Roasted Veggie, Black Bean and Cheese Wrap



  • 1/3 cup commercial salsa
  • 6 ounces yams, peeled and sliced into 4-inch strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, stemmed and sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1/2 yellow or green bell pepper, stemmed and sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and sliced into large sections, separate the large sections into individual pieces
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 Mission Life Balance Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup drained black beans
  • 1/2 cup cooked instant brown rice
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese, such as mozzarella or Monterey Jack
  • 1/3 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves


Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the salsa in a strainer and let drain. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, toss yams, peppers, onion, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and olive oil until well coated. Place on cookie sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and golden, stirring once to avoid burning.

Assemble wraps: Place a tortilla on a clean, dry surface. Spread 1/4 of the vegetable mixture, black beans, rice and cheese in the middle. Top with 1/4 of the cilantro leaves and a tablespoon of the salsa, then, tightly roll tortilla into a burrito and wrap in plastic wrap to compact and allow it to form a roll. Repeat this step for remaining three wraps. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes 4 servings.
