I love to grill these sandwiches for quick summer meals or impromptu get-togethers around the pool. They're a snap to prepare, and no one ever guesses that they're low fat. —Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fat-free refried beans
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 8 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup chopped lettuce

"I liked this recipe. I would add cumin to the meat next time for flavor but you could really taste the beans and the bbq flavor in the meat. I did take out the onions and glad i did. It might have caused the meat to brake up to much"
