Recipe: Black Bean, Rice, and Corn Burritos

Black Bean, Rice, and Corn Burritos (crock pot recipe)

makes about 9 servings


  • 15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 10 ounce can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 cup uncooked whole-wheat rice
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 package of large flour tortilla
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 5 cups shredded lettuce
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream

BBR - ingredients

Place everything from black beans to garlic (first 11 ingredients) in a 3 to 4 quart crock pot and stir well.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours. Depending on what type of rice you buy will determine when to add it. We bought 10 minute rice and added it with 45 minutes remaining on the 4 hour timer.

BBR - mixture

Stir in cilantro after the 4-5 hours.

Heat tortillas according to package directions.

Spoon bean and rice mixture into tortillas and top with shredded cheese.


Roll up tortilla and top with lettuce, sour cream, and salsa. I didn’t add the picture of that because it wasn’t very appeasing – I’m not good with staging a food photo shoot.

  1. This sounds good… i am going to try in in the next week or two! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Michelle says:

    Yum I need to make this!

  3. This is definitely something that my girl friend and I would both eat! We will have to try out the recipe. Thanks!

  4. That looks delicious… we do a super-striped down version of a bean burrito – just La Preferida canned beans in a tortilla. But it’s really filling, low-fat, low calories, and very easy to make. Basically just spread the beans in a toasted tortilla, roll, and voila! We’ll try this version on the weekends when we are feeling a little bit more chef-like. 🙂

    • Andy says:

      I will have to try yours too! It sounds like a really good idea if you’re on the go or don’t have a lot of time to cook. Do you add salsa though? I’d probably have to do that…
