In a non-stick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add drained black beans and seasonings. Let cook for 2 minutes, then use a masher to smash the black beans. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Until hot throughout.

Lay tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread black beans onto tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese.

Put under the broiler for 2 minutes (this step is optional, you could serve without broiling).

Make lime crema by combining sour cream, juice of 1 lime and 1 tbs water.

To assemble tacos top each tortilla with avocado pieces, a drizzle of lime crema and some cilantro. Enjoy!
