Notes

-You can replace the black beans with chickpeas or another legume.
-A brand that I love of black beans and I always use is SW organic canned black beans. Amazon sells a box of 12 cans for $27 dollars, they last me for a whole month.
-Please be sure to put set the heat of your stove to medium so you don’t burn them, and after the top tortilla is on top press them down with your spatula so the filling stays in the tortilla.
-Use any plant-based cheese that you want, my favorite brand of cheddar cheese is Follow your heart shredded cheddar cheese, it is the cheddar cheese that is more similar to the real cheddar cheese, but is not the same so don’t put your hopes up!
