Makes 12 servings


1/4 cup water
1 onion, diced
2 bell peppers (red, orange, yellow, or green), seeded and diced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
black pepper, to taste
3 cups drained canned or cooked black beans
10 button mushrooms, sliced
2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup salsa
3 cups cooked brown rice
Salt or tamari, to taste
Tabasco sauce, to taste
12 whole-grain tortillas


Heat water in a large saucepan or wok. When hot, add onion and sauté until limp. Add bell peppers, cumin, garlic, and black pepper, and cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Add a little more water if necessary, to prevent sticking. Stir in black beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, and salsa, and cook and stir until mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes. Add rice and season to taste with salt or tamari and Tabasco sauce. Serve on warm tortillas, folded or rolled up to enclose filling.
