Ingredients

  • 4 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches)
  • 6 cups shredded romaine
  • 1/2 cup canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives, drained

  • DRESSING:
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free ranch salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
