The traditional unleavened bread wrappers of Mexico, whole-wheat tortillas are a versatile way to add grains to your day.

Ingredients

(Serves 8)
  • 4-ounce can diced green chili peppers, drained
  • Half a small onion, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 10-inch fat-free whole-wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

In a bowl, combine peppers, onion and cumin. Sprinkle each tortilla with cheese, using 1/4 cup cheese on each. Divide pepper mixture among tortillas, spreading it over cheese. Fold each tortilla in half and put in greased 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

Cover pan with foil. Bake at 350 F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese melts. Remove foil. Cut each tortilla into 4 pieces. Serve with your favorite salsa for dipping.
