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



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.


Wrap the corn tortillas in a damp paper towel & 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.


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 & lettuce.
