Ingredients
  • 6 corn tortillas (if the tacos aren't soft, steam them first)
  • 2 cloves garlic (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro (finely chopped or torn)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
Method
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, combine the black beans, garlic, cilantro, cumin, salt and lime juice. Using a potato masher or the back of the spoon, mash everything together until it is combined, smooth with some chunks of black bean. Place a heaping tablespoon of the black bean mixture on one side of the tortilla, sprinkle it with cheese and roll it up. Place the taco on a parchment lined baking sheet (or a buttered baking sheet) with the open edge facing down, folded under. Repeat with the other tortillas. Brush with butter and bake in the oven about 10-15 minutes or until warmed and crispy. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and enjoy! Serves 4-6
