We’re huge fans of tortillas, but, as with lots of our favourite things they’re not too slimming friendly. The Old El Paso Stand ‘n’ Stuff Soft Mini Tortillas we use in this recipe are perfect for recreating a traditional stuffed tortilla whilst saving on some calories and Points etc.

Old El Paso Stand ‘n’ Stuff Soft Mini Tortillas

The Old El Paso Stand ‘n’ Stuff Soft Mini Tortillas were launched back in August and they’re great if you’re looking for a low calorie and low Point tortilla.

You can have 2 of them for less calories than a regular sized tortilla! They may be small, but you can pack them full of beans and veggies to make a super filling meal.

And as Old El Paso themselves say, they have all the flavours of the original range – just in mini portions!

You can buy them in most major supermarkets for around £2. You get 12 in a pack so that works out at only pennies per tortilla. Economical for your pocket as well as your calorie count!

You may have noticed that we haven’t specified a portion size for this Chicken and Black Bean Mini Tortillas Recipe. We’ve counted it per individual tortilla, so you can have as many as you want, just add the calories or Points etc up accordingly.

There’s also a few different spices in this recipe. We know everyone has a different ‘spice tolerance’ so the quantities aren’t set in stone. If you like things quite mild then you can decrease the quantities slightly. However, if you have an asbestos mouth you can add as much as you want!

The important thing about this is the seasoning. Add some Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper before you let it simmer. Then check it again when it’s cooked and adjust accordingly. As with the spices, the amount you add is just down to personal preference.

This recipe makes quite a lot! So if you don’t use it all in one sitting you can freeze whatever is left for another day.
