1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
1/4 cup salsa

4 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded leaf lettuce
1 tomato, chopped
Sdditional salsa for serving (optional)


  1. Combine black beans, salsa and bulgur in a saucepan and simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat a tortilla in a dry skillet until it is warm and soft, then spread a line of bean mixture down the center of the tortilla. Top with lettuce, tomato, and additional salsa, if using. Roll the tortilla around the filling, then repeat with the remaining tortillas.
