Tortilla Pillows
Servings: 2 Prep 10 mins Total Time 30 mins


  • 1 cup no salt added pinto beans
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
  • 2 8 inches whole wheat tortillas
  • Guacamole, salsa, and/or sour cream

Make It

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mash beans with a fork. Spoon 1/2 of the beans and 1/2 of the cheese onto the center of each tortilla.

2. Fold each tortilla into a square. (If tortillas are too stiff to fold, place them between two dampened paper towels in the microwave for 10 seconds.)

3. Place tortilla pillows, folded side down, on a baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp and the insides are warmed through. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice, and serve with desired toppings.
