Print Recipe
Serves: 8


  • 3 T olive oil, divided
  • 1 onion, small dice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 handfuls fresh spinach
  • 1, 15 oz can corn, drained
  • 1, 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning (I like Ortega brand)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup salsa (mild or spicy)
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 3 very large whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese



Heat oven to 400 degrees


Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large and deep frying pan. Sauté the onion and garlic until fragrant, 5 minutes. Add the spinach and let wilt for 3 minutes.


Add the corn, black beans, taco seasoning and rice. Mix together for 5 minutes and remove to a medium bowl. Add the marinara, and salsa to the rice mixture and mix well. Reserve.


Wipe out your pan using a paper towel and coat pan in remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Place one tortilla in the pan. Layer with 1/3 of the rice mixture. Top with 1/2 cup cheese. Place the next tortilla on top of the cheese and top with another 1/3 of the filling and top with cheese. Repeat one more time layering the last tortilla, topping with remaining rice mixture and finish with 1 cup of shredded mozzarella.


Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
