I love recipes that are versatile and can be served year round, that also provide great nutritional value. It’s an extra bonus when those same recipes are inexpensive and easy to prepare. This black beans and rice wrap filling meets all of those criteria! This meal can also be prepared completely oven free.

Black Beans and Rice Make Ahead Wrap Filling
This recipe is one that I make in bulk and freeze. I am giving you the ingredients below for one 8 serving meal. Multiply it as you need to make as much as you like.
1 cup uncooked brown rice (we like basmati)
1 lb dried black beans
1 small bag frozen corn
8 oz cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
1 packet taco seasoning or 3 table spoons of your own mix
Summer Cold Serving
Refrigerate mixture and serve cold on tortillas or with tortilla chips.
Spoon mixture into quart size freezer bags. Freeze bags. Take bags out of freezer on the day you want to use them for lunch. Pack them in a cooler bag with other items you want to keep cool. By lunchtime, the mixture in the bags will be thawed to eat and the other items in the bag will still be cool. Mixture can be eaten from the bags with a spoon or spooned onto tortillas for a healthy poolside lunch.
Winter Warm Serving
Transfer mixture into a 9×13 pan. Sprinkle some extra cheese over the top if you like. Bake on 400 until heated through and serve.
