These were really easy and came together in about 10 minutes. They were good but not really anything special.

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

In a nonstick skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, chilies and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Spoon about 1/2 cup off center on each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese. Fold one side of tortilla over filling. Garnish with avocado.
