I need recipe ideas for whole wheat soft shell tortilla's

I just bought them and noticed they expired 4 days ago. So I'm thinking they should get used right away

  • My girls like it with cream cheese, some lunch meat or turkey, some tomato slices. Roll it up and it is like a sandwich. Quesadilla are always good. Layed enchiladas

  • Sweet Potato Burritos
    3 teaspoons olive oil
    1 onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    6 cups canned kidney beans, drained (I use home cooked black beans; you can use any bean)
    2 cups water
    3 tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    4 teaspoons prepared mustard
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
    3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
    4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
    12 whole wheat tortillas, warmed
    shredded cheese (whatever you have)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic in until soft. Stir in beans, and mash. Gradually stir in water, and heat until warm. Remove from heat,
    and stir in the chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas. Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito style. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, and serve. NOTE: I put the cheese inside and freeze burritos wrapped in wax paper in a big zipper bag; they can be microwaved safely in the wax paper.

  • Southwest Falafel
    1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans (drained and rinsed) (any bean, canned or 1.5 cups home cooked)
    1/2 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
    1/4 cup finely crushed baked tortilla chips
    2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
    1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
    1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 large egg white
    1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
    Spread – I don’t use this part; I mash an avocado with salsa and fat free yogurt (Greek-style is best)
    1/4 cup mashed peeled avocado
    2 tablespoons finely chopped plum tomato
    1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
    2 tablespoons sour cream
    1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 (6 inch) pita's, each cut in half crosswise – I use 4 whole wheat tortillas

  • To prepare patties, place pinto beans in a medium bowl; partially mash with a fork. Add cheese and next 5 ingredients (through egg white) stir until well combined. Form into 4 (1/2 inch thick) oval patties.
    Heat oil in a lg nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties; cook 3 min on each side or until patties are browned and thoroughly heated.
    To prepare spread, while patties cook, combine avocado, tomato, red onion, sour cream, lime juice, and salt. Place one patty in each pita half. Spread about 2 tablespoons of spread over patty in each pita half.
