  1. Heat a saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and cooking oil and then onions to heated oil with some salt. Saute for ~3 minutes, until softened.
  2. Next add garlic, bell peppers, and cumin. Saute for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add chipotles and crushed tomatoes (If you’re worried about heat at all, start with half - or even less - of the chopped chipotles. You can always add more heat later). Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. If the pan ever looks too dry, just add some water (or white wine if you have some open!).
  4. Next add in black beans and saute for another 3 to 5 minutes, just enough to warm up beans. Finish with pepitas.
  5. Warm tortillas according to package instructions.
  6. Enjoy saute with tortillas, avocado, lime wedges, and leftover slaw on the side. You can try to make tacos or just break up the tortillas to scoop up all the goodness. If you have creme fraiche leftover from the week, feel free to add some to your saute for extra creaminess.
