Rice and Beans Wraps

"This is a favorite in our family. It's super easy to make. It's healthy. AND it travels well when you have to fit a meal into a night of sports or other kids' activities. We wrap these in foil, individually. Warm in the oven at 300F, then put into a small cooler (no ice, of course) to keep hot until ready to eat. Stow along a bag of tortillia chips too!!!"

    What a great lunch. I cut the recipe in half and used recipe#426147#426147 for the Pace salsa and otherwise followed the instructions. I think next time I might put some green onions on top before rolling (I love onions) but this will be a repeat in our house. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2013.

    We had this tonight for dinner and it was very good. I cooked the rice yesterday in my rice cooker and then refrigerated it. So tonight it went together very fast. I put the rice into a microwave covered dish, the sauce and then the black beans on top. With that, I put it in for 5 minutes, stirring once half way through. Added a couple of large spoonfuls onto the tortillia, then cheese and rolled it up. Since everything was hot, I skipped the oven step and we just dug right in.

<p>I'm a stay at home mother of three. 7th, 8th &amp; 11th grade. I left my corporate career&nbsp;4 years ago and have LOVED being a full time homemaker. In 2004 I finished formal training in Massage Therapy and became licensed.&nbsp; I now have my own MT practice, which I work part-time.&nbsp; I founded The Lindsey Group which is comprised of other independent therapists in my area.&nbsp; We share office space which makes it possible for all of us to be self-employed without financial burdon of monthly office lease.&nbsp; My favorite things to do are cooking and gardening. Healthy diet habits are my passion and many of my recipes are in that category. But I collect and use a lot of long time favorites from my family and my church too. My family's favorites are Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple Salsa, Mexican Lasagna, and Chicken Pot Pie. When soccer keeps me from the kitchen, my family loves it when I mix up Rice and Beans Burritos, wrap them in foil and stowe them in a cooler (no ice). We enjoy them at the soccer games. Our family favorite comfort food is Saulisbury Steak, mashed potatoes and green beans (not quite in the healthy category). That's a Southern meal in anyone's book! For good nutrition, I supplement with Pure Liquid Herbs. If you have any questions about how nutritional herbs can improve your health, I'll be glad to answer you. Just send me a Zaar note. <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /></p>
