In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, combine tomatoes, onions, poblano peppers, garlic, oregano, cumin, chipolte puree, and salt. Cook until onions are softened and flavors have begun to meld. Stir occasionally.
Stir in beans and corns and simmer for warming beans and corn.
While beans are cooking warm the tortillas, either in the oven, wrapped in foil at 375 degrees. Or on a gas burner, place tortilla each on flame for 2-3 seconds on each side.
Just before serving stir in cilantro to corn. Taste for added salt or adobo for spice.
To serve, spread 1/2 romaine lettuce on each warm tortilla, followed by the bean filling.
