What You'll Need
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 1 zucchini, shredded
- 1 yellow squash, shredded
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon Adobo seasoning (see Note)
- 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
What to Do
- Whisk together cumin and Italian dressing in a large bowl. Add zucchini and next 3 ingredients; toss gently. Set aside.
- Combine black beans and next 2 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
- Spoon zucchini mixture evenly down center of each tortilla. Top evenly with bean mixture and cheese. Roll up tortillas; secure each with a wooden toothpick. Garnish with coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
- Look for Adobo seasoning in the ethnic section of larger supermarkets. Or create a similar blend with 1/2 teaspoon chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder, and dried crushed red pepper.
- Warming tortillas in the microwave or oven according to package directions makes them pliable and easy to roll up.
