PREHEAT the oven to 350°F. Stack the tortillas on a large piece of foil, sprinkle the top one with water, and wrap in the foil. Heat for 10 minutes.
MEANWHILE, heat a large nonstick skillet coated with olive oil or cooking spray over medium heat. Add diced sweet onions and bell pepper. Cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly soft. Add the jalapeno pepper (if using), garlic, and cumin.
COOK veggie mixture for 2-3 minutes or until aromatic. Stir in the beans, spinach, and tomatoes. Cook for about 5 minutes or until heated through. Spread the veggie-bean mixture evenly in the skillet.
REMOVE skillet from the heat and sprinkle with the cheese. Let stand until melted. Top with dollops of the sour cream and sprinkle with the cilantro.
CUT the warmed tortillas into quarters or strips. Serve immediately with the veggie-bean taco skillet. Serve with avocados, salsa and top with olives.
