1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup water, chicken broth, or vegetable broth

1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, pepperjack, monterey jack, or a mixture)

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, chile powder, chipotle chile, cumin, and salt, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the beans and broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and allow to simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in salsa, and mash lightly with a slotted spoon or fork.
Spoon about 1/3 cup of the bean mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top each serving with about 2 1/2 Tablespoons shredded cheese, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/4 cup lettuce, 1 tablespoon green onion, and 1 tablespoon sour cream. Roll tightly and serve immediately.
