2 16-oz. cans black beans including liquid
2 teaspoons Chili powder
½ teaspoon Ground cumin
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Bay leaf
12 6-inch flour tortillas
6 Green onions, minced

In a medium saucepan, combine beans, bean liquid, chili powder, cumin, garlic and bay leaf. Simmer 10 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Drain bean mixture, reserving liquid. Mash beans, adding liquid as needed for desired consistency.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fill tortillas with 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons bean mixture and top with green onions and tomatoes. Roll up into a tube shape and place in a 9- by 13-inch baking pan, seam side down.

Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Use any leftover bean mix for dipping. Or dip in salsa. Makes 12 flautas.

Spread on tortillas and proceed with recipe.
