1. Combine all the ingredients numbered 1 in a bowl.

2. Warm the tortilla in a pan. Transfer to a plate and brush with little olive oil. Sprinkle around 2 tbsp grated cheese on one half of the tortilla. Top it with around 1/2 cup black bean filling followed by 2 tbsp shredded cheese.(OR you can combine the shredded cheese with the black bean mixture and use as a filling). Fold the tortilla and place it on a heated pan. Cook for 2  minutes or until cheese starts melting and it turns golden brown and crisp. Flip over to the other side and cook for another 1 – 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Cut into 2 – 3 pieces and serve with sour cream, pico di gallo, or guacamole.
