1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained
1 cup sour cream

8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
4 ounces (1 cup) LAND O LAKES® Cheddar Cheese, finely shredded

To serve, top each enchilada with dollop of remaining sour cream; sprinkle with green onions. Serve with chopped tomato and shredded lettuce, if desired.
