  • Step 1

    1. Remove the husks of the tomatillos and rinse them to get all the sap off.

  • Step 2

    2. Dice tomatillos and place in a oiled broiler-safe pan. Sprinkle some sugar on top and stir around; this cuts the tartness a bit.

  • Step 3

    3. Broil tomatillos until they are charred and some of them are blackened, about 10-15 minutes. They will cook down and basically turn into a thick sauce.

  • Step 4

    4. Meanwhile, saute onions with garlic in olive oil in a pan. Once they're translucent, add black beans, cumin, salt and any other Mexican seasonings you might like. Cook until beans are heated through. When you're about to remove the beans from heat, stir in a squirt of lime juice.

  • Step 5

    5. While the tomatillos are broiling and the beans are cooking, wrap 2-3 tortillas in paper towel and microwave for about 25 seconds. Keep doing this until you have the number of tortillas you'd like.

  • Step 6

    6. Layer beans and tomatillos in tortillas (I did tomatillos then beans, but I think the opposite would be better). Top with avocado and cilantro.
