Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups black beans (canned or cooked black beans)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons Mexican hot sauce (like Cholula)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat a grill.

  4. Brush 4 tortillas with a bit of olive oil and grill each side for about 3 to 4 minutes, until just blackened.
  5. On each tortilla, place black beans, roasted tomato salsa, cumin sour cream, and crumbles of queso fresco or feta. Garnish with the extra lime zest and a wedge of lime.
