What makes this recipe healthier

  • Organic tortilla: Choosing an organic brown rice tortilla means no preservatives or ingredients that may be harmful to your health. You can also choose an organic and sprouted whole-grain tortilla to really step up the nutritional value if you prefer the taste and texture of wheat instead of brown rice.
  • Light-in-sodium refried beans: Refried beans notoriously contain lard or hydrogenated oils. Instead pick up some of Amy’s vegetarian refried beans. You can also simply bake and mash down red beans if you are in a pinch.
  • Hot sauce: High fructose corn syrup in your hot sauce? No way! Simply use an organic enchilada sauce instead.
  • Organic onions: Organic onions provide a sweet taste and crunchy texture to this recipe without any pesticides from the conventional alternative.
