Spinach & Black Bean Wrap

I'm one of those people who is always looking for some easy lunch recipes. I work at a computer all day but don't have time to make any elaborate meals - so quick, easy, and easy to clean up are my requirements.

If you make the rice and spinach/bean mixture ahead of time, these wraps can be enjoyed in less than 5 minutes. I wasn't expecting a whole lot when it came to flavor, but holy cow these wraps are exploding with flavor! And even though without meat, they are very filling. Try them - you won't be disappointed!
