  • Place tortillas between paper towels. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) 20 to 40 seconds or until warm. Spoon bean mixture onto tortillas just below centers. Top with cheese. Fold bottom edge of each tortilla up and over filling. Fold in opposite sides; roll up from the bottom. Lightly coat outsides of wraps with cooking spray.

  • Preheat a panini press. Place wraps (half at a time, if necessary) in press. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until tortillas are toasted and filling is heated through. (Or preheat a skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Place wraps, half at a time if necessary, in pan. Weight down with a heavy skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until wrap is toasted. Turn wraps, weight down again, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until wrap is toasted and fillings are heated through.)

Tips

Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
