Lunch Burritos

Serves 6
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 1 hour
Total time 1 hour, 15 minutes


  • 6 Large whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 can (540 mL) black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup cheese (your favourite variety, finely shredded)


My photos picture fresh tomatoes, a spice mixture and a jalapeno for flavouring.  I've simplified this recipe by suggesting the use of a pre-made salsa.


1. Cook brown rice per package directions - cooking time is usually 40-45 minutes
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl (except for cheese)
3. Separate rice mixture into 6 roughly equal portions
4. Fill each tortillas with rice mixture and top with cheese
5. Fold each short side of the tortilla over the top of the rice mixture, followed by one of the long sides, and roll end-to-end
6. Wrap each tortilla in a paper towel, followed by plastic wrap
7. Freeze. To heat, remove plastic wrap and microwave for 2-3 minutes.
