  • 1 15 1/2-oz. can navy or Great Northern beans, undrained
  • 1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/2 cup low-fat grated Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese


  • 10 6- to 8-inch corn or flour tortillas

Toppings, Optional


    To make California Taco Filling: Put beans, red pepper and red onion into a saucepan, and cook over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in cheese, and season to taste.

    To prepare Tortillas: Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle on stove over medium-high heat. Lay tortillas on skillet or griddle for about 10 seconds. Turn and warm other side. Remove from heat, and wrap in a napkin or dishcloth until ready to assemble tacos.

    To assemble, set a tortilla on a plate, and spoon on some filling. Top as desired, roll up and eat.
