· 1½ cups (170 g) of cooked black beans or wiled rice or cooked lentils

· 2 Tbsp Mexican spice

· 6 large (25 cm) tortilla wraps

· 2⅓ cups refried beans *( I used my fasolia yiaxni)

· 2 red bell peppers, diced

· 2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced

· 1¼ cups (176 g) canned corn, drained

· ½ cup (8 g) fresh cilantro (optional)

· ½ cup (68 g) sliced black olives

· ½ cup (75 g) pickled jalapeño slices

Serves well with

· avocado

· hot sauce · quick guacamole · salsa


1. Preheat an oven to 350°F (180°C).

2. To a bowl, add the cooked black beans or cooked trice and spice mix and stir to combine.

3. Take a wrap, and top it with a heaping ⅓ cup of refried beans, spreading it out over half the wrap. Sprinkle overtop of this about a ¼ cup of the cooked beans or cooked rice.

4. Continue to add to the wraps the remaining ingredients, to your liking: bell pepper, scallions, corn, cilantro, olives, and jalapeños.

5. Fold in each side of the wrap, then roll, starting from the closest edge, until the wrap is closed. Place seam-side down on a baking tray.

6. Repeat with the remaining wraps.

7. Bake in the oven on the centre rack for 7 - 10 minutes, until the wraps are lightly golden. If after 10 minutes they are not golden enough to your liking, turn on the broiler and grill them for a minute. Keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn in that time.

8. Allow the wraps to cool to room temperature before wrapping them in parchment paper and freezing.

9. Top with desired garnishes like salsa, guacamole, avocado slices, or hot sauce. Enjoy!
