Tips

Expert Tips

Ground spices quickly lose their aroma and flavor, so buying them in small quantities is wise. Store spices in airtight containers in a cool, dark place for no more than about 6 months.

One 15-ounce can of vegetarian refried beans can be used in place of the black beans and spices. Just spread on pitas and continue with recipe.
