Cooked 100% whole grain brown rice, sautéed onion, garlic and spices, flavorful black beans, corn, and cheddar cheese wrapped inside a flour tortilla – the yummiest alternative to take out when you’re craving Mexican food.
Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, garlic, chili powder and cumin. Sauté 3 to 5 minutes until onion is tender.
Add cooked rice, black beans and corn; cook over medium heat, stirring. This process will take up to 3 minutes or until the mixture is thoroughly heated. Remove from heat.
Spoon ½ cup rice mixture down center of each tortilla. Top each with 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon green onion and about 2 teaspoons sour cream; roll up, top with a scant tablespoon of salsa before serving. Tip: squeeze a lime for extra flavor and freshness.
