Partially mash beans and add to pan. Cook 2 mins. Add whole and creamed corn and cilantro. Mix all ingredients together. Add salt and sugar, and check consistency, making sure it is soft and easy to use as a filling. Set aside.

Heat tortillas on a hot griddle, 2 or 3 at a time, until they become flexible. Fill them with a few spoonfulls of filling. Roll up tortilla around filling.
