Bean Wrap

We like this recipe. A LOT! Depending on how many people are eating, you may end up with a good portion of leftovers. There are many ways to vary this recipe and I'll add those at the end. Feel free to tweak this as much or as little as you want.

~1 can each of pinto beans, kidney beans, black beans (rinsed & drained)
~1 can diced tomatoes with chilies
~1 cup brown rice
~ground cumin
~ground cayenne pepper
~multi-grain tortillas
~red-leaf lettuce
~some type of hot sauce--we use garlic chili sauce

Boil 2 cups water, add the rice, cover and simmer until rice is tender & water has cooked away. Season with cumin & cayenne pepper. Place the beans & tomatoes in a large dish. Mix well. Add the cooked rice and mix again. Assemble a tortilla with lettuce, rice mix & hot sauce. And you're done! Easy peasey!


*Variations*
~add corn to the mix
~omit the rice
~use fresh tomatoes
~omit the tortilla & lettuce and use as a side dish
~top with chopped fresh cilantro
~add sliced black olives
