Ingredients
  • FILLING
  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans (I use fat free)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder or 1 teaspoon ground dried chile
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 -5 dashes garlic powder
  • hot sauce
  • 1 cup hot cooked rice (I usually omit) (optional)
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese or 8 ounces monterey jack pepper cheese, shredded or thinly sliced (I use low fat)
  • your favorite salsa
  • 1 package flour tortilla (10-in. The recipe usually uses 5 tortillas the way I make it)
  • TOPPINGS
  • ANY OR ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TO TASTE
  • chopped tomato
  • shredded lettuce
  • sliced black olives
  • sliced scallion
  • sliced jalapeno
  • sour cream
  • guacamole
Directions
  • Place beans in microwave safe dish.
  • Stir in next 5 ingredients.
  • Heat on medium power for about 3 minutes or until hot, stirring once halfway through.
  • Alternatively, heat over low heat on stovetop until warmed through.
  • If mixture becomes too thick, add water.
  • Mix in rice, if using.
  • Meanwhile, heat the tortillas.
  • Use the method you like best.
  • I usually just heat them one at a time in a dry skillet over medium heat, about 20-30 secs per side, or just until pliable.
  • Place about 1/3 cup bean mixture in each tortilla, add cheese, salsa and toppings, and roll.
  • You can bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes if you want them firmer/crisper.
