Spinach & Bean Burrito Wrap
- 6 cups baby spinach loosely packed
- 15 ounces black beans can, rinsed and drained
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice cooked or Mexican rice (recipe for Mexican Rice recipe)
- 1/2 cup romaine lettuce hearts chopped
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated, reduced-fat
- 1/2 cup salsa (recipe), optional Pico de Gallo
- 6 tablespoons Greek yogurt fat-free
- kosher or sea salt to taste
- 6 whole grain wraps or tortillas, 8 inch
- To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 300 degrees. Stack tortillas, wrap in foil, place on a cookie sheet and warm 15 minutes while preparing ingredients.
- Place spinach in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, or use a knife to dice leaves. In a large skillet turn to medium-heat, add black beans and spinach. Heat until spinach is wilted, approximately 3 minutes.

Confused, I’ll check the #’s of the tortillas. I used nutritiondata.self.com to calculate the data.
Julie, Updated! Thanks.
Using La Banderita's carb counter tortillas, plain brown rice and 2 tbsp light sour cream per burrito, this comes out to be 6 points plus per serving. If your mexican rice recipe was used, they would be 7 points plus. Yum!
What type of tortillas did you use?
Angela, I usually make my own https://skinnyms.com/homemade-whole-grain-tortilla…. But, when in a pinch, I use a brand called, “Xtreme Wellness”.
oh my goodness!! This was soooo good! I actually mixed everything all together and ate it without a tortilla. Despite my 4 year old saying "it kinda looks like bird poop" (and it really did when it was all mixed up), he ate it and loved it too.
I make this probably weekly without the rice. I mash the black beans spread on the wheat tortilla add spinach and a bit of low fat cheese and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds…add salsa, guac and yogurt….awesome quick go to meal when you need something fast instead of driving through the fast food line. It takes just a few minutes to make and is filling!
Very nice meal! I made it tonight and my husband enjoyed it as well. Thanks!
Thanks Ali! 🙂
made this tonight with the homemade mexican rice. It was amazing!!! My fiance and i loved it! we will def be making it again and again! thank you!
Sarah, GREAT! I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe. 🙂
Have you ever tried freezing uneaten wraps? I am only cooking for myself.
Yes, uneaten wraps should freeze well. Assemble and cool to room temperature before wrapping them airtight and placing them in the freezer. They should last about 4 months this way and can be heated straight from frozen in the oven or microwave. Do not thaw before cooking or they will be soggy.
Hi, I am thinking of freezing them as well. Do you freeze with all ingredients assembled in the wrap? Including the lettuce and greek yogurt?
Maye, That is an excellent question! I would not freeze them with the Greek yogurt or the lettuce now that you mention it. The cheese and the salsa, however, can be added before freezing or after. Those should freeze okay. Thanks.
Thanks for the recipe! It's full of food my husband doesn't like, so I decided to make one each day while he was at work. I have a suggestion for those of you who only plan to eat one at a time. Put all the ingredients except for the lettuce into a bowl and microwave for about 1 minute (at least in my high wattage microwave). The spinach wilts, and everything heats up nicely. Then mix it all up, the way they do at burrito shops, and stuff that into the tortilla, topped with lettuce. It's much more convenient that way than heating up each thing separately and getting a small pan messy with beans and spinach.
Hi, I couldn’t find the recipe! I would love to make it! Thank-you, Kim
We’re not sure why you wouldn’t be able to see the recipe. Here you go!
6 cups baby spinach, loosely packed
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-1/2 cups cooked brown rice or Mexican Rice, (recipe for Mexican Rice recipe)
1/2 cups chopped romaine heart lettuce
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
1/2 cup salsa (recipe), optional Pico de Gallo
6 tablespoons Greek yogurt, fat-free
Kosher or sea salt to taste
6 (8″ whole grain) wraps or tortillas
To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 300 degrees. Stack tortillas, wrap in foil, place on a cookie sheet and warm 15 minutes while preparing ingredients.
Place spinach in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, or use a knife to dice leaves. In a large skillet turn to medium-heat, add black beans and spinach. Heat until spinach is wilted, approximately 3 minutes.
Evenly distribute spinach and bean mixture in the middle of the wraps (leaving about 2″ on one end for folding), add 1/4 cup rice to each wrap, add lettuce, cheese, salsa and Greek yogurt evenly over wraps. Fold wraps over and under on the ends.
This sounds like recipes I’ve been searching for! No frills, but tasty and easy… thanks!
You’re welcome, Karen! Enjoy!
How would this recipe equate to the skinny plate? Would it account for all 3 portions (protein, healthy fat, and complex carb) on the plate therefore eaten alone and with nothing else? It looks delicious- just want to make sure I’m sticking to the skinny plate guidelines when I make it! Thanks!
Alice, This yummy burrito is a meal in one, with healthy carbs, protein (plant based), and good fats! It’s filling and delicious. 🙂
I love these! I’ve made them twice before and ate leftovers with eggs the next morning. Delicious! Making them now and really looking forward to them 🙂
Would you be able to use frozen spinach in the bean mixture instead of fresh?
Yes, frozen spinach will work great!
I’m looking for something to put in my daughters lunch box
Do you think this would taste as good cold?
Ariel, I thing cold would be fine, at least for me. 🙂
