TACO WEEK: CRISPY BLACK BEAN TACOS WITH FETA AND CABBAGE SLAW

It's hard to beat the standard American taco -- ground beef flavored with a packet of taco seasoning piled with toppings into a crispy, store-bought shell. But with a little extra effort, you can create more gourmet tacos that are appropriate even for a special occasion. Today's recipe is meat-free and got a four-fork rating from the readers of epicurious.com. It was originally printed in Bon Appetit magazine in February 2009.

INGREDIENTS

1 15-oz. can black beans, drained

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

5 teaspoons olive oil, divided

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 cups coleslaw mix

2 green onions, chopped

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

4 white or yellow corn tortillas

1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Bottled chipotle hot sauce or other hot sauce

DIRECTIONS

Place beans and cumin in small bowl; partially mash. Mix 2 teaspoons olive oil and lime juice in medium bowl; add coleslaw, green onions, and cilantro and toss to coat. Season slaw to taste with salt and pepper.

Heat 3 teaspoons olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortillas in single layer. Spoon 1/4 of bean mixture onto half of each tortilla; cook 1 minute. Fold tacos in half. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Fill tacos with feta and slaw. Pass hot sauce alongside.

Makes 4 servings.
