Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add sliced onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add garlic to pan; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in beans and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 1 minute. Add spinach to pan; cook 1 minute or until spinach wilts and beans are thoroughly heated.
Combine tomato, chopped onion, cilantro, lime juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and jalapeño in a small bowl. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Arrange 1/3 cup bean mixture in center of each tortilla. Top each taco with 3 tablespoons tomato mixture and about 1 tablespoon cheese.

I thought this was excellent. I tried it thinking it would just be okay. I had shallots cut so I sautéed them instead of onions. Then I also had some green onions cut so I used them instead of raw diced onions. Then I lightly warmed it all. Also used a teeny bit of sour cream on it.
As I don't eat tomatoes, I modified this a little. I like salsa, so I just substituted jarred organic salsa & spiced it up with the extra onions, lime juice, jalapenos & cilantro (left out the salt as there was some in the jarred salsa, actually I always leave out the salt unless I'm baking, left it out of the other part too). It was the right kind of yummy to spice up the spinach/bean combo for the tacos. Great quick lunch or light dinner.
I found these to be "just ok" as well...the salsa and cheese do help but the bean mixture needs something in addition to the onions; maybe just more garlic and/or salt. This looked like an interesting (and cheap) recipe but I'm not sure I'd make this again.
