  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1/3 cup crumbled cotija cheese

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and slightly charred, about 12 minutes.
  2. Stir in black beans, water, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, until the beans are heated through and the spices coat the vegetables, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro and lime juice.
