  • Place onion rings on large plate; brush both sides with some of the lime juice mixture. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. Set aside.

  • Place asparagus in a large resealable plastic bag, peppers in a second bag and squash and zucchini in a third. Divide remaining lime juice mixture among the 3 bags. (Can be done 2 hours ahead.)

  • Coat all vegetables with nonstick spray and grill, covered. Grill asparagus 10 minutes, turning often, and onion, 8 minutes, turning once. In a grill basket, cook single layer of peppers 10 minutes, turning often; remove. Add squash in a single layer; grill 6 minutes, turning once. Place all vegetables on a platter.

  • Heat tortillas according to package directions. Spread each with 2 tablespoons hot refried beans, then 3/4 cup mixed grilled vegetables. Top with 1 tablespoon each cheese and guacamole and 2 tablespoons salsa. Fold in half. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas, and serve.
