By: Alison Kent

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp (10 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 sweet green pepper, diced
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each salt and pepper
  • 1 can (19 oz/540 ml) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup (250 ml) salsa
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cooked corn kernels
  • 4 large (10-inch/25 cm) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups (500 ml) shredded old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) diced pickled jalapeno peppers (optional)


Directions
1
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, green pepper, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.

2 Add black beans, salsa and corn; cook, stirring often, until heated through, about 5 minutes.

3 Evenly spoon bean mixture over half of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese. Fold uncovered half over top and press lightly. Bake on greased large baking sheet in 425°F (220°C) oven, turning once, until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Cut into wedges; serve with sour cream, and jalapenos (if using).

Makes 4 servings.
