Black Bean Tacos

After I used some corn tortillas for a soup, I was left with quite a few tortillas left over. This recipe IMMEDIATELY came to mind! It's quick, easy, and delicious! Although, I swear I posted it before! It is a great vegetarian meal that is quite filling.

The original recipe calls for feta crumbles, but I wasn't paying $4 for a small pkg, so I cut up some sharp cheddar into tiny squares and we loved it even more!

Black Bean Tacos-shared from The Hart of the Home 
2 cups black beans
1/2 tsp cumin
1 pkg broccoli slaw(or shredded cabbage)
1 lime, juiced
1/3 cup feta crumbles or chedder cubes
8 corn tortillas
hot sauce

Mash the beans slightly and sprinkle with cumin, stir. Set aside. Combine slaw and lime juice, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and set aside.

Heat 1-2 tsp of oil in frying pan until hot. Place corn 1-2 corn tortillas in pan and fry until golden brown. Flip and fill with 2 tbsp beans(or what will fit), fold over and heat for a few mins. Remove from pan and place some slaw on top, sprinkle with hot sauce just before serving. Continue with the rest of the tacos.

**We added to much hot sauce to ours, but that was our own fault! We liked the sharpness of the cheese and the tang of the lime juice. YUM!
