Ingredients

California taco filling

  • 1 15 1/2-oz. can navy or Great Northern beans, undrained
  • 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/2 cup low-fat grated Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese

Tortillas

  • 10 6- to 8-inch corn or flour tortillas

Toppings, optional

  • Chopped avocado

Preparation

  1. To make California Taco Filling: Put beans, red pepper and red onion into a saucepan, and cook over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in cheese, and season to taste.
  2. To prepare Tortillas: Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle on stove over medium-high heat. Lay tortillas on skillet or griddle for about 10 seconds. Turn and warm other side. Remove from heat, and wrap in a napkin or dishcloth until ready to assemble tacos.
