Gluten Free Egg and Black Bean Tortillas

In 2007 I spent 4 months in Central America, mainly Mexico and Guatemala, and this is where I fell in love with corn tortillas. Almost every day in Mexico I ate street tacos which are small corn tortillas with beef, onions and cilantro (coriander) bought from and eaten at a cart. They were so simple, flavoursome and delicious that I couldn’t get enough. They were also insanely cheap. This love affair with Mexican street tacos was two years before my life became gluten free so who could have known that corn tortillas would go on to save me on many gluten free dining occasions.
