A tasty wrap made at home

I have a habit of frequenting Starbucks. Probably too often! On one of my stops, I was browsing the menu while waiting and saw they offered a black bean quinoa wrap. I quickly ordered it and realized I could easily make this at home. The wrap was vegetarian and filled with a mixture of cooked quinoa, corn and black beans. It was toasted, served warm and was very filling and delicious. Here is my recreation of this delicious wrap.

Copycat Starbucks black bean quinoa wrap recipe

Yields 4 wraps


  • 4 large whole wheat wraps
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (19 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese


  1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, add the quinoa and the vegetable broth. Cook the quinoa for about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently or until all of the liquid has evaporated. Once cooked allow to cool.
  2. In a bowl add the mayonnaise, lime juice and all of the seasonings, mixing well.
  3. To the pot of quinoa add in the corn kernels and the black beans gently tossing to mix. Divide the quinoa mixture between the 4 wraps and top with the shredded pepper jack cheese and a dollop of the mayonnaise mixture. Tightly roll each wrap in plastic wrap and chill for several hours or until ready to eat.
  4. To prepare the wraps heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Toast each wrap until the outsides are golden brown and it's completely heated through. Cut in half and serve.
