  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200°C.
  2. Prepare the cups- Using a 2" round pastry cutter, cut 3 rounds from each tortilla (discard trimmings); you'll need to press firmly to cut through.
  3. Brush both sides with canola oil.
  4. Press tortilla rounds into mini muffin pan, then bake for approx 6 mins until crisp.
  5. While the cups are cooling on wire rack, prepare the filling- Combine beans, tomatoes, garlic, shallot, pepper, zest, olive oil, juice and maple syrup in a mixing bowl, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Assembling the appetizers- Spoon the bean mixture into each tortilla cup and sprinkle chopped cilantro just before serving.
