1 cup (4 ounces) goat cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) grated reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 (15-ounce) can red beans, rinsed and drained
8 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
Cooking spray
Cilantro sprigs (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine first 5 ingredients; spread about 3/4 cup cheese mixture onto each of 4 tortillas, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top each with a tortilla, pressing gently to secure. Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; cover with foil. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until cheeses melt. Serve with Green-Chile Salsa; garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
