Ok, let's try just a simple blog post. This dish was made for the son of a friend for his class at school. The assignment was to make authentic meals from other cultures. The assignment came with a recipe. Of course, I cannot follow a recipe to the T, so I had to add my own touch to the dish.
Here is the recipe as I made it.
1 cup rinsed, drained canned black beans, mashed
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 cup washed, torn romaine lettuce leaves
1 cup chopped seeded tomato
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup plain nonfat yougurt (I think sour cream would be better)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, finely chopped
4 - (8inch) tortillas
nonstick cooking spray
water for sprinkling on tortillas
Combine beans, chili powder, and cumin in a small saucepan. Cook 5 minutes or so over medium heat until heated through.
Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray over medium high heat. Allow to get hot, then sprinkle the tortilla with some water. Place each in the skillet one at a time. Cook for 20-30 seconds then flip once and cook another 30 seconds.
Spread bean mixture evenly over the tortillas. Layer with the lettuce, tomato, onion, yogurt and peppers.
