To prepare fresh tomatillos, strip off the husks and rinse under warm water to remove any sticky sap clinging to the skin.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb. fresh whole tomatillos, husks removed
  • 1 small onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 cup)
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (1 cup)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 Tbs. coarsely chopped cilantro, divided
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1 small avocado, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 Tbs. queso fresco or feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed, optional
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream, optional

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil. Place oven rack 3 inches from heat source. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray, and spread tomatillos, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic on prepared baking sheet. Broil 12 minutes, or until tomatillos are blistered and charred, and onion and bell pepper are softened and charred, tossing once halfway through cooking time.
  2. Pulse garlic, 1 Tbs. cilantro, jalapeño, and tomatillos 10 times in food processor, or until chunky. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Toss 1/4 cup tomatillo sauce with black beans, red bell pepper, and onion.
  4. Fill tortillas with black bean mixture, avocado, and queso fresco. Garnish with remaining cilantro and corn kernels, if desired. Serve remaining tomatillo sauce and sour cream, if desired, on side.
