  • Add in chopped tomatoes and salsa; cook stirring for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Add in corn, refried beans and black beans; stir with wooden spoon until heated through (about 5-6 minutes) season with more salt and pepper if desired; remove from heat.
  • Place about 1/2 cup ground beef filling down the middle of each tortilla; fold opposite sides of the tortilla to center over the beef mixture, then fold ends toward center; secure with a toothpick; place on a plate and refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
