  • 1 (14 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3 large flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions (about 2 scallions)
  1. Place the beans, cumin, lime juice, garlic and salt into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  2. Add the cilantro and blend for a few more seconds, until the cilantro is finely chopped and incorporated into the mixture.

  3. Spread one third of the black bean mixture over one of the tortillas.

  4. Arrange one third of the spinach over the beans, then sprinkle with peppers, olives and scallions.

  5. Roll the tortilla up as tightly as you can. Then slice into 1-inch pieces.

  6. Repeat for the rest of the tortillas and fillings.

  7. Serve.
