Beef and Bean Enchiladas
Recipe Source: deliciousdecisions.org
1/2 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
1/2 cup salsa
8 6-inch corn tortillas
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 cup canned nonfat refried beans
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
In a small bowl, stir together tomato sauce and salsa. Using about half the tomato sauce mixture, brush both sides of each tortilla. Stack tortillas on a plate and set aside. (This allows tortillas to soften.)
In a large skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until brown, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place in a colander and rinse under hot water. Drain well. Wipe skillet with a paper towel. Return beef to skillet. Stir in refried beans, chili powder, cumin and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes, or until heated through.
Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas and place, seam side down, in a 10x6x2-inch or 9x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Top with remaining tomato sauce mixture.
Broil 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes, or until browned. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Serves 4; 2 enchiladas per serving
