    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
    1/4 cup picante sauce
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    2 cups cooked brown rice

In a large nonstick skillet, saute the green pepper, onion and garlic in oil until tender. Add the beans, tomatoes, picante sauce, chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until heated through and mixture thickens. Add rice; cook 5 minutes longer or until heated through.
Spoon a rounded 1/2 cup down the center of each tortilla. Fold sides over filling and roll up. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon salsa over each tortilla. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese and cilantro. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

    Using lower sodium black beans cuts down on the sodium content which is important for me. These are delicious. - 10/23/17

    I used tooth picks (two each enchilada) to keep them closed, then removed them when serving. Great taste, LOVE these!!! I love the cook book this came from!! Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet is awesome! :) Thank you for posting this! (Now I can use the totals without having to enter it too. ) - 5/1/11
