cooking spray.

onion and garlic and saute for 3 minutes. Add the chili powder and cumin
and saute for 1 minute. Add half of the tomatoes and the corn, chiles, salt
and pepper and simmer for 1 minute.

Wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and warm in the oven for 5 minutes.

In a food processor with the metal blade, combine the beans and sour cream
and process until smooth. Add to the frying pan and cook until the beans
are warm, about 3 minutes.

Divide the bean mixture among the tortillas. Roll and place seam side down
in the prepared dish. Top with the remaining tomatoes and the cheese. Cover
with aluminum foil and bake until the cheese melts, about 20 minutes.

To serve, divide among 4 individual plates. Top each with an equal amount
of the Tomato Salsa.

Tomato Salsa In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, chili,
cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir to mix well. Cover and
