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!
