Loaded Black Bean + Guacamole Tacos

A quick and easy Vegetarian dinner any night of the week, but especially on Taco Tuesday!

Savory, Delicious and Satisfying!

It’s Taco Tuesday time again!  By now you know we love Taco Tuesday!  Tacos are adaptable to tastes, nourishing, delicious and so satisfying!  The perfect quick and easy meal!

These Loaded Black Bean and Guacamole Tacos are a real win.  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 (we used Mission Brand) with some lettuce.  That’s it! Savory, warm and cozy.  And couldn’t be easier or yummier!

The boys, not being fans of beans the way my husband and I are opted for classic beef tacos with guacamole.

Ingredients
Quick Simmered Loaded Black Beans
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • kosher salt to taste (1/8 - ¼ tsp)
  • ⅓ cup frozen or canned corn kerns, rinsed and thawed (feel free to add more to tastes)
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper, diced (feel free to add more to tastes)
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers ,diced (or more to taste)
Guacamole
  • 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
  • 6 soft Gluten-Free corn tortillas
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • Cilantro, chopped for garnish
Instructions
Quick Simmered Loaded Black Beans
  1. Add beans including liquid to a small saucepan over medium heat. 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.
Guacamole
  1. With a fork gently mash 2 avocados
  2. Mix in the peppers.
  3. Then gently fold in the tomatoes and cilantro
  4. 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)
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Assemble
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve and Enjoy!
