This was my lunch today. It is one of my favorite easy lunches or after school snacks. Made with a whole grain tortilla, fat-free refried beans, and shredded cheese, it contains a whole grain, a lean protein, and a dairy serving in one dish. And, when it is served with salsa, you can count a vegetable serving, too.
Here’s the recipe for 1 lunch serving or 2 snack servings:
2 whole grain soft tortillas
1/2 cup canned refried beans (fat-free)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the beans on each of the two tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese. Place on a baking sheet and cook in oven for 10 minutes (until cheese is bubbly and browning begins). When removed from the oven, fold each in half and cut into 3 or 4 triangle pieces. Serve with your favorite salsa. Easy and delicious!!
