Yes, you guessed it, another bean recipe!  I told you we have been eating a lot of beans lately!
The bean we especially like using alot of is the Cannellini bean because of the awesome health benefits.  Did you know its one of the least glycemic bean?  Did you know they are great in lowering cholesterol and are super charged with antioxidants?  There are so many great things about the cannellini bean that makes it a must in any ones diet, its worth checking out.
I super sized these bean rolls into 4 servings but you can make them smaller.  We usually have 1 with a dinner salad and it is a great filling meal.  I also used a spicy chicken sausage but you can use plain ground chicken or turkey and season it yourself.  My husband raved about these, hope you like them too!
1/2 lb spicy chicken sausage
1/2 cup red and green peppers, diced
1/2 cup onions, diced
1 10 3/4 oz can Campbell's Healthy Request cheddar cheese soup
4 large fajita style, whole wheat tortillas
1 15 oz can cannellini beans
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese

1 10oz can green enchilada sauce
Preheat the oven to 400.  Spray a medium saucepan, with cooking spray and brown the ground chicken, peppers and onion on medium high heat.  Turn off heat and stir in the can of cheddar cheese soup.
Pour 1/2 the can of enchilada sauce on a plate and have another plate ready to wrap  your tortillas on
Dip tortillas in sauce and coat both sides.  Transfer to spare plate.
To each tortilla, add 1/4 the chicken mixture, 1/4 can beans
1/8 cup sharp cheddar cheese
Roll up (do not tuck ends) and lay in baking pan( I used a 7 x 11 pan)
Pour the other 1/2 can of enchilada sauce over the top and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or as brown as you like them. 
Sorry I didnt get a plate shot, I was so hungry I forgot!
