Serves 2

This wrap is a burrito. Filled with savory black beans, crunchy peppers, rice, and Mexican seasonings, it is the most conventional mixture. For a more authentic treat, substitute the Monterey Jack cheese with a mild flavored Mexican or Spanish cheese, such as Manchego.


  • One 15 1/2 ounce can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper, seeds and ribs discarded
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper, seeds and ribs discarded
  • 3/4 cup cooked long grain white rice, warm
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup picante sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot adobo marinade
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • Two 10- or 11-inch flour tortillas

  • FLAVORED TORTILLA SUGGESTION: chipotle, whole wheat


Heat the beans in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the peppers, rice, cilantro, picante sauce, adobo marinade, and cumin; cook until warm, 2 to 3 minutes.

Divide the bean mixture among the tortillas, top with cheese, and wrap.


Hot Adobo Marinade is a blend of dried red chilies, water, salt, and sugar. It is used as a marinade or sauce, and can be added to other sauces, poured over prepared dishes, or used as a grilling marinade. It has a smoky-chile taste. Look for adobo marinade in grocery stores or where Hispanic products are sold. If you aren't able to find it, a canned enchilada sauce can be substituted. Enchilada sauces are thinner and less spicy but taste very similar. We recommend Las Palmas brand. It is very good and has a medium heat version.
