Ingredients

  • Two

    15-ounce cans black or pinto beans, drained and rinsed

  • Water for heating the beans

  • 1

    tablespoon chili powder, or to taste

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1

    jalapeño pepper, finely chopped

  • 6

    large flour or corn tortillas (corn tortillas are smaller, so you may need more)

  • 1

    cup cooked brown rice (seasoned with salt and perhaps a squeeze of lime juice)

  • 1/2

    small head lettuce, shredded or 2 cups of mixed greens

  • 1-1/2

    cups of your favorite salsa

  • 2

    avocados or 1 cup guacamole

  • 2

    fresh tomatoes, chopped

  • Nondairy sour cream (optional)

Directions

In a saucepan, add the rinsed beans and enough water to just barely cover the beans. Add the chili powder, cumin, and jalapeño pepper. Cover, and heat over a low-medium flame. It should take about 10 minutes for the water to begin to thicken (and evaporate a bit) so that the spices become more incorporated into the beans. When the beans are heated through and thickened up, begin filling the tortillas. To make the tortillas a little more pliable (and delicious), just heat them up briefly over an open flame or in the microwave for a few seconds. Spoon a couple tablespoons of rice onto a tortilla about 1 inch from the bottom, and spread it out in a horizontal line. Using a slotted spoon, scoop out the beans and add a few tablespoons on top of the rice. Add the remaining toppings, such as the lettuce, salsa, avocados or guacamole, tomatoes, and sour cream. Do not overfill, or it will be difficult to roll. Begin rolling, from the bottom up, tucking the sides in as you go along.
