Why waste calories on chips when baked tortillas are just as good? We also added lots of tasty, high-fibre refried beans and fresh toppings like avocado and chilies.


Ingredients

  • 6 whole-grain tortillas
  • 1 tbsp canola oil , divided
  • 1 garlic clove , minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 398-mL can black beans , drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cheddar
  • 1 ripe avocado , peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 tomato , diced
  • 1 green onion , thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup cilantro

Instructions

  • POSITION racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat to 400F. Stack tortillas and slice into 8 wedges each. Arrange on 2 baking sheets, then brush both sides of tortillas with 2 tsp oil. Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, switching and rotating sheets halfway through, until golden, 5 to 6 min. Transfer to a rack. Preheat broiler.
  • HEAT a medium saucepan over medium- high. Add remaining 1 tsp oil, then garlic and cumin. Stir constantly until fragrant, 1 min. Add beans and water. Continue cooking until beans are soft and most of liquid is absorbed, 5 to 7 min. Mash with a potato masher until creamy and thick. Stir in salt.
  • ARRANGE baked tortillas on an ovenproof plate or dish. Layer with 1/4 cup cheddar, then beans and remaining 1/4 cup cheddar. Broil in top third of oven until cheese is melted, 1 min. Top with avocado, sour cream, tomato, green onion, jalapeno and cilantro.
