Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Season the duck breast with salt and pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a large oven-proof saute pan over medium heat. Place the duck breast, skin-side down, in the pan and cook until the skin is crispy and brown, 10 minutes. Turn the duck breast over and cook for 10 minutes more. Transfer the pan to the oven. Roast for about 5 minutes for medium-rare; 8 minutes for medium; 10 minutes for well done. Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for about 2 minutes. Let cool and remove the skin. Shred the meat and set aside. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Add the corn, shallots, and garlic, and cook, stirring, for another 2 minutes. Add the duck, black beans, and rice and season with the chili powder and cumin. Add the duck stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the liquid has reduced by two-thirds, 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and reseason with salt and pepper if necessary. Stir in the cilantro. Cool completely. Preheat the fryer to 360 degrees. Spoon ¾ cup of the filling into the center of each tortilla. Lightly wet the edges of the tortilla with water, then fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll it up tightly, forming a burrito, making sure that the sides are completely sealed. If necessary, secure each end of the burrito with a toothpick. Place the burritos, a couple at a time, in the hot oil and fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Turn them with a spoon for even browning. Drain on paper towels. Season with Bayou Blast. To serve, spoon equal amounts of the Chili Corn Sauce in the center of each plate. Place the burrito on the sauce, then garnish with a sprinkle of the cheese and a dollop of cilantro sour cream. This recipe yields 6 servings.
