"When I get home late from work as an operating room nurse, I often rely on this handy recipe," says Jane Epping of Iowa City, Iowa. "Topped with salsa and sour cream, the crisp wedges are always a hit. when I have extra time, I add chopped onion, black olives and green chilies to the beans."

"Really enjoyed this.Only thing I might do a little different would be to flip them to crisp up both sides a little better. My toddler loved it. It's a win-win-win-win. I can already tell this will be classic at our house, since it's cheap, easy, really good, and healthy (especially if made with whole wheat tortillas and low fat sour cream). A real winner!"

"This is easy and delicious! I usually serve with some Spanish rice (rice cooked in chicken broth with some salsa) and cooked corn."
