Ingredients

  • 1/2  c brown rice
  • 1 c quinoa
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 c corn kernels
  • 3 T chopped green chilies drained
  • 1-1/2 c fresh spinach leaves chopped

  • 1/2 plain Greek yogurt
  • t kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1 t chipotle chili powder

  • large wraps I used spinach wraps

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the rice and cook 15 minutes. Add the quinoa and cook an additional 15 minutes. Drain off all the water from the rice and quinoa, replace the lid, and let sit 10 minutes.
  2. To the cooked brown rice and quinoa, add the remaining ingredients. Taste for seasoning, and add more salt if necessary (I'm a heavy salter). Serve about a cupful in a large wrap. This also makes a delicious side dish for dinner. Yield: 8 servings.
