Heat oil in sauce pan and when it begins to shimmer, add the onion and sauté 3 mins. Add spices and garlic and cook 30 more seconds. Add beans and water and simmer 20 mins till very soft. Take your potato masher and mash them up till they’re half mashed and half chunky still. Set aside.
Take each tortilla and lightly fry 15 seconds per side in a skillet with a small amount t of oil in it, this will keep your corn tortillas from cracking when you roll them.
Place about 2 tablespoons of beans in each tortillas, and if you want to. E bad add a little cheese on top. Roll up tortilla and set aside. After each Taquitos is rolled up, heat about 1/2 and inch of oil in your skillet and lightly fry each Taquitos till golden brown. Top with cilantro lime dressing (recipe below). Any topping of choice is fine too 😋
