This salad is so delicious and quick to prepare, healthy as all heck, and CHEAP CHEAP to make! I eat it often when I am short on time. I used to sprinkle cotija cheese over the top, but since I am on my new, almost-vegan diet I have eliminated it and have not for a second had any complaints!


2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 basket cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 jalapeño, deseeded and chopped fine (for spicier or lazier version leave seeds)
1 red bell pepper, deseeded and chopped fine
1 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted (lazier version can add them untoasted)
Juice of 2 limes
8 corn tortillas, cooked over a gas stove
2 teaspoons Maldon finishing salt, check for taste


Mix all ingredients except tortillas and salt in a medium mixing bowl, stir well. Add salt to taste, and let stand about 5 minutes to absorb. Serve with warm tortillas.
