3. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the pinto bean mixture, stirring often, for 3 to 5 minutes or until hot.

4. Lay 1 tortilla on the counter. In a mound on the tortilla, leaving a little space around the edges, layer ¼ of the pinto bean mixture, ¼ of the cabbage mixture, ¼ of the tomatoes, ¼ of the avocado, and 1 tablespoon of the sour cream. Add a couple of shots of hot sauce. Fold the right and left edges of the tortilla over the filling. Roll up tortilla, completely encasing the filling. Set it seams down.
