¼ C scallions (green onions), rinsed and sliced into ¼-inch wide circles, including green tops
¼ C celery, rinsed and finely diced
1¼ C frozen yellow corn
½ ripe avocado, peeled and diced
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped (or substitute 2 tsp dried coriander)
1 can (15½ oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
¼ C reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
¼ C salsa or taco sauce (look for lowest sodium version)
12 (9-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
Combine scallions, celery, and corn in a small saucepan. Add just enough water to cover.
Cover, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes, until vegetables soften. Drain vegetables. Set aside to cool.
Combine avocado, cilantro, and beans in a large mixing bowl. Add cheese and salsa, and mix.
When corn mixture has cooled slightly, add to avocado mixture.
In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, warm each tortilla about 15 seconds on each side. Place each tortilla on a flat surface. Spoon ⅓ cup of the mixture into the center of the tortilla. Fold the top and bottom of the tortilla over the filling. Fold in the sides to make a closed packet.
Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
When all tortillas are wrapped, continue heating in the oven 5 minutes, until all are warm and cheese is melted.
Try serving with extra salsa on the side.
