Bean Taco Recipe

Share This Recipe:

Bean tacos are easy to make and taste great. Best of all, they can be enjoyed by everyone including vegetarians. All you need is some black beans, pinto beans, corn tortilla shells, and a handful of your favorite taco toppings. Feel free to experiment with the amount of each type of bean you use to match your taste (I prefer more pinto beans personally). Don't forget to serve with hot sauce to add an extra kick of spice to these bean tacos!

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
  • 1 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained

  • 2 white onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the drained black beans, pinto beans, cumin and chili powder (increase the amount of chili powder if you want spicier tacos)
  2. Heat up a large skillet to medium heat and coat with some olive oil (~2 tbsp)
  3. Once oil is hot, add chopped onions to skillet.
  4. Cook onions for about a minute until they start to soften up, then dump in the mixture of beans and spices.
  5. Cook for about 4 minutes until beans are warmed up.
  6. Remove pan from heat and squeeze half of your fresh lemon so juice is spread over the top of your cooked bean mixture.
  7. Add beans to warmed up corn tortillas and top with fresh, chopped cilantro for both flavor and presentation of your dish.
  8. Enjoy!

Using your favorite hot sauce as a topping for this recipe adds a great flavor to the beans
