Health Highlights


1 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 medium Yellow onion (chopped)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 dash Salt
1 dash Black pepper
4 breast Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (cubed)
1 medium pepper(s) Jalapeno pepper (seeded, minced)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (chopped)
1 can (19oz) Black beans, canned (drained, rinsed)
1 cup Salsa, ready-to-serve
8 large tortilla(s) Whole wheat tortilla
2 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, reduced fat (18%)
1/2 cup Sour cream, light


In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry onion, garlic, salt and pepper until softened, about 3 minutes. Add chicken, jalapeño, red pepper, beans and salsa; cook, stirring, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Spoon about 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the filling down centre of each tortilla; sprinkle each with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the cheese. Fold in bottom edge, then sides; roll up. Place, seam side down, in greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden and hot, and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Serve with sour cream.
