6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
6 cups packaged coleslaw

1 1/4 cups fat-free refried beans
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup unsalted pumpkin seed kernels, toasted (optional)

1. Prepare grill, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
2. Brush chicken with juice; sprinkle with seasoning and sugar.
3. Place chicken on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Cool slightly

Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds, if desired.
