Black Bean Tacos

  • 1 15 oz. can black beans or 3 cups fresh, cooked
  • 1 package of corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups diced romaine lettuce or cabbage
  • 1 cup salsa of your choice – traditional, mango, tomatillo
  • 1 large avocado
  • Hot sauce


  1. Heat the black beans in a saucepan or in the microwave oven for a few minutes until heated through. If you want to spice them up you could add some cumin, chilli powder or hot sauce.
  2. Wrap the corn tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for about a minute or until they are softened. If you prefer, put them into a toaster oven until toasted to your desired crispness.
  3. To prepare the tacos, place about 1/4 cup black beans into each taco shell then top with diced tomatoes, red onion, avocado, hot sauce or salsa and lettuce.
