Serves 2

Variations: add chopped cilantro, tomatoes, bell peppers or shredded chicken.

  1. 2 8″ whole-wheat or multi-grain grain tortillas

  2. 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  3. 1/2 cup cooked black beans, mashed with a fork (if canned, rinse well)

  4. 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

  5. Sour cream, for serving

Top one half of a tortilla with 2 tablespoons cheese.  Add 2 tablespoons of mashed beans on top of cheese – sprinkle 2 more tablespoons of cheese on top of beans.  Fold tortilla in half. Repeat with the remaining tortilla.  Brush both sides of both tortillas with oil. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.  Carefully place folded tortillas in the pan and cook for approx. 2 minutes, or until cheese melts.  Flip, cook an additional 2 minutes, until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden brown.  Remove from pan and let cool for a few minutes; cut into triangles and serve with sour cream for dipping.
