This recipe was a wonderful success in that my kids ate it, too! Hooray! I used a prepackaged rice and beans mix which cooks up really fast and is very tasty. Wrap tortillas can be purchased in your grocery store. They come in various wonderful flavors. We used Zesty Garlic and Herb for ours.


1 package

Vigo Santa Fe Rice and Beans, prepared according to pkg directions


"wrap-style" flour tortillas, heated according to pkg directions

1 tablespoon

Vegetable oil (olive, safflower, or canola)


Large onion, coarsely chopped

1/2 pound

Mushrooms, sliced

1/2 cup

Bell peppers, coarsely chopped (I used green and red for color)

1 clove

Garlic, minced (or more, to taste)

2 tablespoons

Fresh cilantro, chopped

1/2 teaspoon

Ground cumin


Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup

Cheddar and/or Monterey Jack cheese


Nonfat plain yogurt (or sour cream)





Add oil to a heated large skillet. Add onions and saute until soft-crisp (about 3 minutes). Add garlic, peppers, mushrooms, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir fry until soft but not mushy (about 5 minutes).


Place tortilla on plate. Spoon beans and rice into center, then add veggie mix. Top with cheese, followed by a little yogurt and salsa. Wrap and eat. Yummy and oh, so healthy.
