I'm always looking for tasty ways to get those healthful beans in my diet since I'm not exactly a big fan of them. This recipe was adapted from Breaking the Food Seduction : The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings---And 7 Steps to End Them Naturally by Neal D. Barnard, founder of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (www.pcrm.org).
- 4 lavash bread (whole wheat) or 4 wheat flour tortillas (lard-free)
- 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added pinto beans
- 1⁄2 cup low-sodium salsa (no-salt-added)
- 2 tablespoons red bell peppers (finely chopped)
- 1 teaspoon chili powder (without salt)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- hot sauce, to taste (1 tablesoon or so of a low sodium brand, such as Jake & Amos)
- salad greens
- tomatoes, chopped
- carrot, shredded
- avocado, chunked
- scallions, sliced or red onion, finely chopped
- Warm the lavash or tortillas one by one in a dry skillet or in the microwave.
- Stack them in a clean towel to keep warm.
- Combine beans, salsa, bell pepper, and seasonings in a medium saucepan.
- Heat uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat.
- Mash beans to desired consistency.
- Spoon 1/4 of bean mixture onto each tortilla, allowing room for rolling into burrito shape.
- Add any topping(s) you desire.
- Roll into burrito shape.
This hit the spot! EASY AND YUMMY, and very good for you too. I topped it with green onions, sour cream and cheese. I didn't even eat it on a tortilla, just threw it in a bowl and scooped it out with some tortilla chips.
