  • Nonstick olive oil spray
  • 2 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 16 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 8 oz shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Drain and rinse the canned beans. Put in a large mixing bowl. Grate the zucchini. Toss the grated zucchini with a teaspoon of salt in a colander, then squeeze out excess water. Combine the zucchini with the beans, spices, grated cheese, and scallions. Spritz one side of each tortilla with olive oil spray. Place eight tortillas oil-side down on a baking sheet. Spread some filling on each tortilla then top with another tortilla (oil-side up). Broil 1-2 minutes (until golden) and flip. Broil the flip side another 1-2 minutes.
