Easy Two-Bean Baked Wraps (with a kid friendly zero spice serving)
10 Whole Wheat tortillas
1 can fat free refried beans
About 2 ½ cups cooked black beans
2 8oz blocks of Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 packet reduced sodium taco powder
Preheat oven to 350
Slice 1 block of cheese into 8 1oz pieces, slice the 2nd block of cheese into 16 ½ oz pieces.
Make the kid friendly portion first:
Place 1 tortilla on a baking sheet. Slather about ¼ C of refried beans over it. Sprinkle about ½ C black beans over the refried beans. Arrange up to 4oz of cheese in ½ oz slices over the beans. Place another tortilla on top. If your delightful small human will only eat warm but not hot food, put this in the oven immediately and remove when the rest are ready to go in (or whenever the melty-crispy factor of the cheese meets your kid’s precise instructions of quality, whichever comes first.)
Make the adult friendly portion next:
Mix the taco seasoning into the remaining black beans with 1-2 T of water. In each of the remaining tortillas layer: ¼ C refried beans, ¼ C spiced black beans, 1 oz cheese. Fold up your wraps and place on another baking sheet. Place ½ oz cheese on top of each wrap. Bake for about 25 minutes.
