    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup salsa
  • Optional toppings: Reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese and reduced-fat sour cream

Directions

  • In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add rice. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Let stand until water is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in oil until tender, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the chili powder, cumin and pepper flakes until combined. Add beans and rice; cook and stir until heated through, 4-6 minutes.
  • Spoon about 1/2 cup of filling off-center on each tortilla; top with 2 tablespoons salsa. Fold sides and ends over filling and roll up. Serve with cheese and sour cream if desired.
