Black Bean Fajitas

Not much to say other than tasty tasty tasty. Generic bean mix can be used with tacos, nachos, or tortillas. If the latest, you can make them yourself *really easily and cheaply*. And yes, I acknowledge that tortillas may only be  6 for £1 but look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves! The trick is just to have them all rolled out beforehand, otherwise you could end up with a kitchen full of smoke. I definitely didn’t forget to roll them out beforehand and ended up with a kitchen full of smoke. Absolutely not. No sirr-ee.
