Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped plum tomatoes (about 6 medium)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves
  • 4 (8-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomato and beans; sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach; sauté 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; mash beans slightly.
  3. 3. Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Top each tortilla with 1/2 cup bean mixture and 1/4 cup cheese; fold in half. Lightly coat tops with cooking spray. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts and tortillas begin to brown. Cut each tortilla into 3 wedges.
