Standard 1 cup measures 240 ml


  • 1 cups Black Beans
  • ½ cup Onion
  • 1 cup Bell Pepper
  • ¾ cup Corn
  • ½ tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper powder
  • Salt as needed
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro
  • 6 Tortillas


Prepare the Filling

  • Heat a pan with oil. Once it's hot add in the finely chopped onion and saute for a min and then add in the bell peppers. I am using 3 color peppers you may use as per your availability. Cook for 3 mins so that they are soft.
  • Next, add the spice powders. I am using Coriander powder, Paprika, roasted Cumin powder, Black pepper powder, and Salt. Combine and cook for a min.
  • Next, add the black beans and corn. Mix everything and cook for a min.
  • Garnish with Cilantro and switch off the flame.

Prep and Stuff the tortillas

  • Heat a heavy skillet and toast the tortilla for 10 secs in each side and remove it from the skillet.
  • Spoon in a generous layer of cheese on one half of the tortilla. And then top it with the prepared black beans and corn filling. Once again top with cheese. I am using mozzarella cheese, you may use any shredded cheese as you prefer. Fold and close with the other half of the tortilla to make a half moon.

Cook the tortillas.

  • Heat the skillet once again, brush with some cooking oil, and once it is hot place the tortillas. Cook for a min and then flip the tortillas and cook for another min and remove from the skillet.
  • Black beans tortillas are now ready. Slice and serve with your favorite sauce or condiment.
