 --------  ------------  -------------------------------- 
    2      tsps          olive oil 
    1      sm            green pepper -- diced 
    2      sm            onions -- sliced thin 
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced 
    1 1/4  c             water 
    2      c             pinto beans 
    3      tbsps         tomato paste 
      1/2  tsp           cumin 
      1/2  tsp           chili powder 
    8                    tortillas -- 7 in diameter 
      1/2  c             Monterey jack cheese -- shredded 
  
 Preheat oven at 350.  Prepare a 11 x 7 pan with cooking spray.  In a
 skillet, heat oil over moderate heat.  Add pepper, onions, and garlic and
 cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until onions are
 lightly browned.  Add 3/4 cup water and cook, uncovered, another 5 minutes
 or until vegetables are very soft and almost all liquid has evaporated. 
 Add beans, tomato paste, cumin, chili powder, and remaining 1/2 cup water
 and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. With a potato
 masher or spoon, mash mixture until smooth.  Place 2 tablespoons of bean
 mixture on each tortilla and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cheese. 
 Roll up the tortillas and place them, seam side down, in a single layer in
 prepared pan. Using a pastry brush, brush each tortilla with a little
 water.  Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes or until
 tortillas are piping hot.
