Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 30 minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tbsp. olive oil over medium high. Dice the onion, then add it and the salt and cook 2 minutes, until just beginning to soften. Add the black beans and ¼ cup salsa and stir to coat with the oil and onions. Cook, stirring periodically, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Mash and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, spread the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet, then place in the oven until crisp, about 6 minutes, flipping the tortillas once half way through. Prepare any desired toppings.

  3. To serve, spoon the black beans over the crisp Casa Mendosa™ tortillas, then pile on the toppings.

  4. Serve and enjoy!
