It’s Taco Tuesday time again!

And by now you know, we loooove Taco Tuesday.

Tacos are adaptable to tastes, nourishing, delicious and so satisfying.  The perfect quick and easy meal!

These Black Bean and Guacamole Tacos are one of our favorites, and are on repeat a lot!

It’s an easy meal that can be on the table in less than 30 minutes and its always a crowd-pleaser… you can’t go wrong when guacamole is involved right?

Recipe inspired by Soup Addict, I took the Quick Simmered Beans we loved from Minimalist Baker and added red pepper, corn, and a little jalapeño.

Then paired it with our Favorite Guacamole,in a soft corn taco (here we used Mission Brand; lately I’ve been using Siete Foods Almond Flour Tortillas) with some lettuce.

That’s it!

Savory, warm and cozy. And couldn’t be easier or yummier!

It literally comes together in minutes.

All you need….  canned black beans, red pepper, canned or frozen (or even off the cob) corn, jalapeno, plus yummy spices — salt, cumin and chili powder to make the quick simmer black beans.

While the beans simmer whip up some guacamole (you could use already prepared but we highly recommend making our simple one below), gluten-free flour tortillas, and some cilantro for topping.

Next up… homemade guacamole!

There are so many variations of guacamole and we’ve tried many versions…. and quite honestly, I’ve never met a guacamole I didn’t like.

BUT…. a friend introduced us to this one with her secret ingredient and we’ve been hooked ever since!

What you need…. avocados, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, salt, pepper and jarred Banana Peppers! Yes, that is the secret ingredient that changes everything!

It add the best tangy flavor (in place of lemon or lime) and as I bonus it helps keep the guacamole fresh and from turning color quickly.

So go ahead and give it a try and let me know what you think!

The boys actually like this meal because of the guacamole!

They prefer their tacos with less guacamole on the actual taco and more served on the side with chips….

Prep Time15 minutes

Quick Simmered Loaded Black Beans

  • 2 15- ounce can black beans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or more to taste
  • 1/3-2/3 cup frozen or canned corn kerns rinsed and thawed (feel free to add more to tastes)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup red bell pepper diced (feel free to add more to tastes)
  • 1/2 - 1 jalapeno pepper diced (more or less to taste)


  • 3 ripe avocados
  • ½ cup jarred banana peppers chopped
  • ¼ cup cherry tomatoes seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the tacos

  • 8 soft Gluten-Free corn or flour tortillas
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • Cilantro chopped for garnish


Quick Simmered Loaded Black Beans

  • Add beans including liquid to a small saucepan over medium heat. Pro Tip: For less liquidy beans, drain some of the liquid before pouring into the pan. Stir in spices and bring to a simmer. Let cook for 10. Add red pepper, corn, and jalapeño if using. Simmer an additional 5 minutes, longer if you want your veggies softer.


  • With a fork gently mash 2 avocados
  • Mix in the peppers.
  • Then gently fold in the tomatoes and cilantro
  • Add in the third avocado and gently mash with a fork (I like to do the third avocado last so that there are some chunky avocado pieces but mix to your liking)
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste


  • Warm tortillas in a microwave by placing on a plate and losely covering with a slightly damp paper towel. This will help make sure the tortillas don't crack and give a better texture.
  • In each tortilla place some lettuce. Using a slotted spoon to spoon out the black beans, top the lettuce with the black bean mixture, then top with guacamole. Garnish with cilantro.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
