Servings: 4

3 tablespoons olive oil
(8) corn tortillas
2 (15 ounce) cans reduced sodium black beans (drained)
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
Black pepper to taste
4 cups cole slaw mix
1 chopped red bell pepper
1/2 small minced jalapeno pepper
1/3 cup chopped green onions
3 Tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

Directions: Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with one 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 bean mixture out on the prepared pan, drizzle with another tablespoon of oil, toss, and roast, stirring a few times, until the beans are
crumbly and crisp in places,  20-25 minutes. Wrap tortillas in foil and transfer to the oven with the beans for their last 10 minutes of cooking.

Meanwhile, put the slaw mix, bell pepper, half of the jalapeno, green onions, lime juice, cilantro, remaining oil and 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 mixture and serve.  
Serve the additional jalapeno on the side for those who want more spice.
Picky Eater/Non-Dieter Tips:  I had a tough time getting my Picky Eater to try the beans, but he loved them once he did. I made him a taco
with the beans and cheddar cheese.  You can always just make a cheese quesadilla if you don't think they are adventurous enough to try.

Cooking Tips:  You want the beans fairly well mashed, but they still need to be chunky.  Spread them out on the pan in single layer so they get
crispy edges.
