1.Preheat oven to 375°F.
2.Heat the beans and Cuban Spice Rub in a small pot. Drizzle with a little Roasted Garlic Avocado Oil if it seems dry. Stir as they heat and mash them until about 50% of the beans are mashed with the other half in tact. Fold in the tomatoes. Keep warm.
3.Place the tortillas on a sheet pan. Drizzle with a little Roasted Garlic Avocado Oil and sprinkle with salt and Cuban Blend. Pop the sheet pan in the oven for 5 minutes to pre-crisp the tortillas. Remove from the oven and spread the warm beans on the tortillas. Top with cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown – about 5 minutes
4.Top with cilantro, avocado, sour cream, salsa or our favorite: pickled red onions!
