Crunchy Black Bean Tacos


I’ve been traveling a lot lately for work and cooking dinner is the last thing on my mind. Crunchy Black Bean Tacos are the perfect fix for busy weeknights. Seasoned black beans loaded with flavor are packed between a crunchy corn tortilla shell stuffed with cheese and my favorite taco toppings. The best part of this meal – it tastes great and comes together in less than 15 minutes!
Crunchy Black Bean Tacos

·1 recipe for Seasoned Black Beans (I made with pre-cooked dry black beans, or you can use canned)
·3 TBS extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
·6 corn tortillas
·½ cup shredded Monterey-Jack cheese
·1 tomato, diced

Heat ½ TBS extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in a skillet. Add corn tortilla. Spoon 1/4 cup or so of Seasoned Black Beans on one half of the tortilla shell. Sprinkle with cheese and tomatoes.

Use a spatula and fold tortilla on half, on top of the side with the beans. Gently press down. Cook for 3 minutes per side until crispy. Repeat as needed to finish making Crunchy Black Bean Tacos.

If you use a large pan, you can do more than one at a time. Serve with your favorite taco toppings (sour cream, salsa, guacamole, etc.).
