Ingredients

2 (6-inch) corn tortillas
Vegetable cooking spray
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1 tablespoon chopped green onions

Preparation

Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes; turn tortillas, and bake an additional 2 minutes or until crisp. Top evenly with cheese and pepper; bake 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

Coat a small saucepan with cooking spray; add Spicy Black Beans, cilantro, and cumin, mashing beans slightly with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook over medium heat until hot, stirring occasionally. Spoon bean mixture evenly over tortillas. Top evenly with lettuce and remaining ingredients.
