:: mouthwatering mondays: black bean tacos ::

Welcome to this edition of....

Mouthwatering Mondays
Black Bean Tacos
Does anyone else out there love Smitten Kitchen? I've been making this recipe for a few years and it's divine. I have to stop myself from eating two at a time. And cumin in mass quantities can't be good, can it? This is one healthy recipe I can't live without!

Ingredients (serves 4):
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
1 teaspoon ground cumin
5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons (or more) fresh lime juice
2 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 white or yellow corn tortillas
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
Hot sauce

1. Place beans and cumin in small bowl; partially mash. 
2. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
3. Mix 2 teaspoons olive oil and lime juice in medium bowl; add coleslaw, green onions, and cilantro and toss to coat. Season slaw to taste with salt and pepper.
4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortillas in single layer. Spoon 1/4 of bean mixture onto half of each tortilla; cook 1 minute. Fold tacos in half.
5. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Fill tacos with feta and slaw. Add hot sauce on the side, or if  you're me, dump it right into the taco.
