Pinto bean pinwheel appetizers

Preparation time: 15 minutes

1 can (16 ounces) fat-free refried pinto beans
4 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup finely shredded mild Cheddar cheese
4 green onions
Fat-free sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place refried beans and taco seasoning in bowl and stir until combined. Spread flour tortillas to the edges with bean mixture. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Lay one green onion in the center of each tortilla. Roll up the tortillas jelly-roll style. Trim the rounded ends of each roll so the edges are straight. Slice each roll into 6 slices using a sawing motion. Place pinwheels in a single layer in a 9″ x 13″ pan. Bake uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Cool slightly, then transfer to serving platter. Serve while warm with salsa and fat-free sour cream, if desired.

Yield: 24 pinwheels
Serving size: 2 pinwheels
