My chimichangas get lovin’ from the oven so they’re a bit healthier. Black beans and corn make it meatless. And it’s a smart way to use leftover rice. —Kimberly Hammond, Kingwood, Texas

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 package (8.8 ounces) ready-to-serve brown rice
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn
  • 2/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed if necessary
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • Optional: Guacamole and salsa


  1. Preheat broiler. In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix beans, rice and corn; microwave, covered, until heated through, 4-5 minutes, stirring halfway. Stir in cilantro, green onions and salt.
  2. To assemble, spoon 3/4 cup bean mixture across the center of each tortilla. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up. Place on a greased baking sheet, seam side down.
  3. Brush tops with 2 teaspoons oil. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat until golden brown, 45-60 seconds. Turn over; brush tops with remaining oil. Broil until golden brown, 45-60 seconds longer. If desired, serve with guacamole and salsa.
