  • 1
    3 tablespoons Olive Oil
    8 6-inch Corn or Whole Wheat Tortillas
    2 cups Cooked Black Beans (drained)
    1 tablespoon Minced Garlic
    1 tablespoon Chili Powder
    1/2 teaspoon Cumin
    1 teaspoon Salt (plus more to taste)
    Black Pepper to taste
    Heat the oven to 400º. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Stack the tortillas and wrap them in aluminum foil. Combine the beans, garlic, chili powder, cumin, half the salt, and some pepper in a bowl. Mash the mixture with a fork or potato masher; it should still be chunky.

    Spread the mixture out on the prepared pan, drizzle with another tablespoon of oil, and roast, stirring a few times, until the beans are crumbly and crisp in places, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the tortillas to the oven with the beans for their last 5 minutes of cooking. 
  • 3
    4 cups shredded Green Cabbage
    1 Red Bell Pepper (chopped)
    1 Jalapeno or Serrano Chile (minced)
    1/4 cup chopped Scallions
    Juice of 2 limes
    1/2 cup chopped Fresh Cilantro
    Meanwhile, put the cabbage, pepper, chile, scallions, lime juice, cilantro, remaining tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and some pepper in a large bowl and toss to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Divide the beans among the warm tortillas; top with the cabbage and serve.
