Burritos are BIG in our household, like seriously big.. I can’t imagine a few days going by without wrapping up one of these little babies. I love making burritos because they are super quick, easy, and healthy. Remember how easy those chicken burritos I made a few weeks ago were? well these burritos are very similar except with black beans and rice.
This is a very vibrant and colorful dish packed with a ton of flavor. I used a mixture of red bell peppers, canned black beans, canned corn, cilantro, onions, rice, and cheese.
I sauteed the ingredients (excluding the cheese and rice) in butter over high heat to melt them all down a bit and add more flavor. After sauteing them I wrapped them up and placed them back on the griddle to crisp up and so the cheese can melt inside for a crispy exterior and a gooey interior!
The great thing about burritos is that they can be stored in the freezer for months and are great for taking to work or school. You can wrap them up and place them in zip-lock bags before or after re-grilling, when you need them just re-heat them in the microwave.
- 1 can of black beans
- 1/2 can of canned corn
- 1.5 cup mozzarella or Mexican blend shredded cheese
- 1 cup cooked rice Optional
- 1/2 bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoons cumin
- juice of half a lime
- 8 medium flour tortillas
- Heat a large skillet to medium heat, add the bell peppers, onion, beans, corn, cilantro, butter, juice of the lime, and spices, saute for 2-4 minutes on high. Remove from heat and set aside.
- To make the wraps, Lay tortilla flat on plate or counter, add 1/4 cup of the bean mixture, 2 tablespoons rice, 2-3 tablespoons cheese. Be sure to leave about 2-3 inches from the corners. Wrap burrito by folding over the edges. Continue this for all 8 burritos.
- After the burritos are wrapped heat a large skillet or pan, add 1 teaspoon oil, place the burritos on the skillet for 1-2 minutes on each side until they are golden and crispy. For the "ridges" use a griddle that has the ridged lines.
- Serve warm with sour cream or salsa.

I made these the other night as I had black beans to use up. I used cheddar as that’s what I had and served with salsa and sour cream. Delicious and super easy!!!
I just made this for my lunch today, & it was delicious even though I didn’t have any green pepper, cilantro or rice. I love mangos, so I added some that I chopped up, & I also used whole wheat tortillas. Yummm! I will definitely be making this often. Next time I’ll be sure to add the missing ingredients. Thank you.

My grocery store had canned roasted corn and it made this recipe even better!
Thank you for posting. Very good.
Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. They freeze well and are a perfect dinner after a long day.

Yes indeed, this is yummy. For my first burrito I realized I forgot to add the lime, once I added it, I realized boy what a critical ingredient. Made the recipe as directed and I’m very happy with it. Next time I might add some green chilis of even jalapenos just to kick it up a notch. I highly recommend trying this recipe, its easy, quick, tasty and filling.
This recipe is AMAZING! I’m not one to usually leave comments on recipes, but this one absolutely needs to be shared with the world 😋 so yummy, so easy to make, so WORTH IT! Whoever has doubts about making this…don’t. You can’t go wrong with these awesome detailed instructions and delicious ingredients!
We loved it so much that we will be making it more often. I can’t belive how much the lime works the flavors of the veggies. I am in love!!
Brown rice and to make it spicier – canned sriracha tomatoes added in! Was a win in our house!

Im making the crispy bkack bean tOrtillas tonight but i am confused on the serving size. It states 1 gram is the serving size that doesnt seem possible .Coukd you please review and give me the serving size in ouncrs or cups
I would assume that is for 1 WRAP. If you look at the nutritional information, that would make perfect sense.
Yes, the data is per wrap.
