{Recipe}Crispy Black Bean Tacos


When I pinned this recipe (here) I didn't know how popular it would become in our house.  Now I make it a few times a month. It's so quick and easy to throw together, especially since I keep the corn tortillas in the freezer for Creamy Vegetarian Tortilla Soup.
 The original recipe can be found here, I changed them from Crunchy to Crispy.  
Ingredients:
2 cups black beans, rinsed and drained(I use one can)
1/2 cup red onion, minced (mine are roughly chopped)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 TBS cilantro, chopped (I used frozen) from Dorot
4-6 oz grated Mexican cheese blend(I use reduced fat)
2 TBS olive oil(or canola)
salt & pepper
8 corn tortillas
Toppings:
1 avocado(optional) or guacamole
Salsa
Sour Cream
 In a medium bowl, add beans spices, onion and salt.
 Lightly mash ingredients together (I use a potato masher).
 Heat oil in large skillet, add one tortilla at a time and let each get hot.  Flip one time.  Add bean mixture and cheese to half of each tortilla. Carefully fold each tortilla in half, pressing down gently with a spatula.  
 Move the folded tortillas to the side of the pan to continue cooking while you add tortillas to the pan.  Continue cooking until browned and crispy. 
 Move to oven to keep warm while cooking the rest.
Serve tacos with toppings like salsa, avocado (or guacamole) and sour cream. They look small but are very hardy and flavorful!

Similar to something I throw together, but the men folk want meat with theirs. Yummy either way.

We make something similar to this, but not in the skillet. I bet they are delicious fixed this way, all crispy like!
