  1. To make the dressing: In a small bowl, combine all of the listed dressing ingredients. Whisk until emulsified.

  2. Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and a sprinkle of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened and are turning translucent, about 5 to 8 minutes.

  3. Add the cumin and cook for about 30 seconds while stirring. Pour in the beans and water.

  4. Stir, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, then remove the lid and use the back of a fork to mash up about at least half of the beans. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, and cover until ready to serve.

  5. To warm the tortillas: Heat a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat and warm each tortilla individually, flipping occasionally. Alternatively, you can warm them directly over a low flame on a gas range.

  6. Put it all together: Just before serving, toss the arugula with enough dressing to lightly coat the leaves. Spread black beans down the middle of each tortilla.

  7. Top with sliced avocado, pickled radishes, a small handful of dressed arugula, and a sprinkle of crumbled feta. Finish with a couple of dashes of freshly ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, and hot sauce.
