Bean & Pineapple Soft Tacos



Quick, easy, tasty meal coming at you right here.  These rocked!  I rolled up mine like a burrito on a corn tortilla, hubs and the brother ate theirs on taco shells.  Whatever you want to call it, it was awesome and I'll be for sure making them again!



Bean & Pineapple Soft Tacos

1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 can (20 oz) pineapple tidbits, drained
1 jar (16 oz) salsa
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
100 calories Whole wheat tortillas
Optional toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, avocado

In a large pan, saute onion and red pepper in cooking spray until tender.  Add the pineapple, salsa, chilies, beans and heat through.  Stir in cilantro.  Place 1/2 cup filling on one tortilla. Add toppings as desired.

Total calories for filling = 820 calories
14 servings = 159 calories per taco with a 100 calories whole wheat tortilla
