Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 mins
  • 1/2     head iceberg lettuce
  • 2      plum tomatoes
  • 1    pound   ground sirloin
  • 2    teaspoons   chili powder
  • 1/2   teaspoon   dried oregano
  • 2      green peppers, chopped
  • 1      small onion, chopped
  • 1    can  (15 ounces) fat-free refried beans
  • 4      whole-grain burrito-size flour tortillas
  • 3/4   cup   reduced-fat shredded cheddar
  • 1/3   cup   light sour cream
Shred the lettuce (you will need 3 cups) and core and chop the tomatoes. Set aside. Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Crumble in the sirloin and season with chili powder and oregano. Cook 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add green peppers and onion. Cook an additional 7 minutes, until vegetables are softened (add 1/2 cup water if pan is dry).
Meanwhile, place refried beans in a bowl and microwave on HIGH power for 2 minutes, stirring halfway.
Spread a tortilla with 1/4 cup beans. Spoon 2/3 cup of the meat mixture in center of tortilla. Top with 2 tablespoons cheese, 2/3 cup lettuce and 1/4 cup tomato. Fold up tortilla, burrito-style; repeat, using all ingredients. Serve with sour cream.
