  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • ½ cup chopped bottled roasted red sweet peppers
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and garlic to skillet; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until pork is cooked through and juices run clear, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together corn, roasted red peppers, green onions, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, the cumin and, if desired, cayenne pepper. In a small bowl stir together refried black beans and the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice.
  3. To assemble, spread 2 tablespoons of the black bean mixture in a 2-inch-wide strip down the center of each tortilla. Top with pork, corn mixture, romaine and tomatoes. Fold bottom edge of each tortilla over the filling. Roll tortillas around filling.
  • Tips: If you can't find refried black beans, rinse and drain half of a 15-ounce can black beans. In a small bowl mash beans; stir in 1 tablespoon lime juice.
  • To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minute or until heated through.
