This weeknight dinner can be prepared in minutes. Using a base of chili beans and your favorite cheese, you can add any combination of veggies and toppings.
By using whole grain or whole wheat tortillas and lower fat cheese, you can really cut down on the calories and fat, making this a healthy and hearty weeknight meal.
Submitted by my Aunt Jasmin from Clinton Township, Michigan. Check out her quick and easy recipe for Greek Quinoa Salad.
6 Whole Grain Tortillas (the bigger ones)
2 Cans Busch’s Chili Beans (mild or hot)
1 Cup Low Fat Cheddar or Colby Jack Cheese (or try Sargento Mexican Blend)
As much as you like of…
Chopped Black Olives
Chopped Seeded Tomatoes
Chopped Red Onion
Any Leftover Veggies (kale, red or green peppers, corn, etc.)
Scoop your beans and any leftover veggies into your wrap. Add the tomatoes, black olives, onion, jalapeno and cheese. Roll it up and seal with a toothpick. Place it in a microwavable container. Repeat until you’ve filled all 6 wraps. (Be sure to reserve some beans, cheese and veggies to top your burritos with).
Once all the burritos are in the container, smother them with the rest of the beans, cheese and toppings.
Microwave on high for 5 minutes, or if you want them crispier, you can bake them in the oven on 350 for 15 - 20 minutes (or until everything is hot inside and cheese has melted).
