Tortilla with Tex-Mex Beans and Grains


Place a warmed Tortilla (corn, whole wheat, etc.) on a plate.  In the photo we are using a small corn tortilla. (To enlarge the photo of the Tortilla with Tex-Mex Beans and Grains, click on the photo or link)

Place some shredded lettuce, or some Tossed Salad, on the Tortilla..

Place some Salsa (the variety you like) on top of the lettuce.

It you like things spicy, you may also want to add a few Pickled Jalape´┐Żo Slices.

Now place the Tex-Mex Beans and Grains on top of the other ingredients.

We like to use a fork to assist us in rolling the Tortilla by lifting one side of the tortilla while using the fork to compress the ingredients together so that it will be easier to wrap.  Push up any ingredients from the bottom 2 inches of the Tortilla. Pull the side you have been holding over the stuffing and bring the other side over it.   Then compress the upper side of the bottom of the Tortilla into the stuffing and fold up the lower portion to form a "pocket."  It is now ready to eat.   When lifting and eating the Tortilla, it is best to hold one hand on the "flap" side and the other hand over the bottom to keep the Tortilla from opening while you eat it When you get some practice, you can do it all with one hand.

If you have never filled a Tortilla before, it may take a little practice to learn how much of the ingredients to put into the tortilla and still be able to wrap it properly.  It should be full, but closed on the side and bottom.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live! (d-2)
