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.
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.
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…. and they also like to add chicken. No matter how you assemble it, this dinner is always a hit!
Hope you like these as much as we do!
