Serves: 6


  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large flour tortillas (8-9" diameter)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon parsley (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with paper and 1 tablespoon olive oil. In a bowl, combine black beans, corn, garlic powder and salt.
  • Rub one side of each tortilla with olive oil. On center of non-oiled side, drop 2 tablespoons black bean and corn filling. Top with cheeses and roll tightly.
  • On prepared baking sheet, place tortillas seam-side down. Secure with toothpick if needed. Spritz or lightly brush tortillas with oil to help them crisp in oven.
