Super Easy Black Bean Taco Recipe

It’s the 3rd week in a row that the hubby and I are exploring a mainly vegetarian diet and it has been amazing. We have not gone completely vegetarian as we sometimes have fish or chicken once a week. Eating meatless meals regularly has not only improved our well being, it has also increased our creativity in the kitchen.

Black Bean Taco

This was one of those unplanned recipes which I made for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I looked in the fridge and we had some leftover cut peppers and cucumbers from our weekly meal prep. I also spotted some flour tortillas in the back of the fridge and thought, why not make some tacos with these ingredients. Everything was ready except the beans which are easy and quick to cook.

I used canned black beans because of their convenience and easiness to prepare. All I did was rinse the beans under cold running water, saute some yellow onions in olive oil and curry powder, then add the beans to the curried onions. The beans are then placed over a bed of arugula and peppers on a warm tortilla. A nice drizzle of bacon cheddar ranch dressing on top brings these tacos from blah to wow!

  1. Yum! I love a good taco, and this black bean version sounds fabulous. I will look forward to trying very soon.

  2. I’m just salivating! How yummy the tacos look like…the filling looks so delicious! Reminds me of how I roll my ‘chapattis’ and ‘beans’ over at lunch when I feel like grabbing a heavier snack.
