Number of Servings: 4


    4 corn tortillas
    1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup salsa
    1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar (regular or vegan cheese, such as Daiya)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the pinto beans in a bowl, add the salsa and mash with a fork until well combined.
Place tortillas on a baking sheet, and place in oven for five minutes, until slightly crispy. Remove from oven and divide bean-salsa mixture among the tortillas. Top with cheese, and return to the oven until beans are heated and cheese is melted, about five minutes.
Serve immediately.

    very good! I added onions and garlic to the mixture and used flour tortillas. Then I topped with some lettuce and a little sour cream before serving. Yum! - 6/14/11

    I tried this with refried beans, weight watchers shredded cheese and hot salsa for a quick brown bag lunch. Wrap it up in the tortilla of choice and microwave at lunch time. Serve with a side of guacamole...yum! - 7/5/11

    suggest adding 1 tsp or cumin or chili powder; also suggest adding chopped onion, garlic, tomatoes, green peppers, shredded lettuce on top; guacomole on side or top. - 2/4/12
