Summer squash, zucchini, corn, tomatoes and beans are wrapped in whole-wheat tortillas and topped with smoky salsa.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup diced yellow summer squash
  • 1 cup diced green zucchini
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 jalapeno chili, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears of corn) or 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup canned pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1/2 cup smoke-flavored salsa

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the summer squash and zucchini, and continue cooking until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, jalapeno, corn and beans. Cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the cilantro and remove from the heat.

Heat a large frying pan (without a nonstick surface) over medium heat. Add 1 tortilla to the hot pan and heat until softened — about 20 seconds a side. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

To serve, divide the tortillas among individual plates. Scoop an equal amount of the vegetable mixture onto each tortilla. Top each with 2 tablespoons of the salsa. Serve immediately.
