  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In shallow dish, mix oil, lime juice, chili powder and salt. Add chicken breasts, turning to coat.
  • 2
    Place chicken on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat about 12 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Remove from heat; slice crosswise into strips.

    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat beans, salsa and cilantro over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Divide chicken evenly onto half of each tortilla; top with beans, cheese and sour cream. Fold tortilla in half over filling.

Expert Tips

Black beans are loaded with fiber--the soluble kind that helps to lower blood cholesterol. Start slowly so you have time to get used to more fiber.

Read labels to find low-fat tortillas. There are plenty of whole grain tortillas available, but not all of them are low in fat.

Feel free to take some liberties with this recipe. Use a grill pan to cook the chicken instead of a grill, and add other healthy toppings, such as lettuce and chopped tomatoes.
