I was thinking that if you can make breakfast burritos to freeze than you have to be able to make a healthy wrap for lunch. Here is the result. Feel free to change it up to whatever sounds good to you!

These wraps are fantastic! I made them to have on hand for my DH's lunches and dinners while he's on the road. I love knowing that he's not eating junk, but it makes me happy that he's also enjoying his meals. This recipe fit the bill and is made better by having a bunch on hand, ready to go. I felt nervous cooking the rice with all that water, but it absorbed it as it cooled . I used the Emeril's southwest spice mix, that's posted on this site, only using half of what was called for and my wraps had plenty of flavor. I left out the salt called for in this recipe, because the seasoning mix had plenty.Thanks for sharing the recipe!

- 4 cups water
- 1 (4 ounce) package southwest seasoning
- 4 (15 ounce) cans black beans
- 2 (15 1/2 ounce) cans pinto beans
- 1 (10 ounce) can whole kernel corn
- 1 (10 ounce) jar salsa
- 16 10-inch flour tortillas

Directions See How It's Made
- Combine rice, southwest seasoning and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until tender.
- Remove from heat, and cool.
- Place black beans and pinto beans into a colander or strainer, and rinse.
- Transfer to a large bowl. Add corn, onion, spices and salsa, and toss to mix.
- Mix in rice and cheese.
- Divide the mixture evenly among the tortillas, and roll up.
- Freeze wraps in single layer on lightly greased cookie sheet.
- When fully frozen, wrap individually; place wraps in large zip-top freezer bags; freeze.
- TO SERVE: Unwrap wraps (that even sounds funny to me) from foil or plastic wrap that you used for freezing.
- Wrap in a paper towel.
- Cook in microwave until heated through (about 2 minutes).
- Or thaw wrap (remove plastic wrap if used in freezing), put foil, and bake at 350F for ten minutes.
