Servings: 24



  • 6 8-inch whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans
  • 3/4 cup dairy-free cheese shreds
  • 1 tsp cumin


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin tin.

  • Scoop 1 rounded teaspoon of bean mixture into each tortilla round and sprinkle with approximately 1/2 teaspoon of non-dairy shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
