Black Bean and Chicken Wrap Dinner

I love spicy Mexican dishes. This is one of my all time favorites and gets away from the common beefy type of Tex-Mex dishes that can get old after awhile. This isn’t the normal chicken type recipe either. I love black beans as well since they are ‘safer’ than most other beans.
I started out by soaking and cooking the beans from dry ones I bought at the bulk food store. I payed maybe 2.00$ for as many beans as you get buying 4 cans of beans. But till I put all the time into preparing them cost adds up.
So for this recipe you need
• 3 cups black beans
• 2 cups cooked deboned chicken
• 1 (14 oz) canned corn drained
• 1 jalapeño pepper (seeds removed) unless you love hot things.
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 2 tsp chicken seasoning
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp crushed dried red pepper
• 3 Tble butter

Cook all together in a large skillet for about 10 minutes. Serve hot, in your favorite tortilla wraps with shredded cheddar, diced tomatoes, avocado, and shredded romain lettuce, top with sour cream. Wrap and enjoy.

~1lb hamburger browned with half of sweet bell pepper diced, slice of sweet onion diced fine, 12oz.canned chili beans, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp oregano, Cajun or creole salt to flavor (about 1tsp)

~mix together one can Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup milk,

~2 cups grated cheese

~in a large enough area spread out 6 large tortilla wraps warmed or 8 small tortilla wraps warmed and evenly fill them with the meat mixture. On each pile of meat sprinkle a bit of grated cheese. Save any left over cheese for the top of casserole.
Next carefully fold up ends and roll up the sides of the tortillas and place them edge down in the prepared pan. After all the burritos are in the pan spread evenly over the top the mushroom soup mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for one hour or until bubbly hot through out.

~serve with diced tomatoes or salsa, sliced avocado and sour cream. (my husband always likes to have Ranch Dressing instead of sour cream with this and hot sauce, of course.)
