I wanted to tell everyone how I made these tacos. This was so super simple and took all of 20 minutes to make. This was most definitely a quick and easy nighttime dinner that was filling and overly good. There aren’t any pictures to this. Just the description of how they were made.
Whole wheat or regular tortillas
1 can of black beans
Red pepper (green pepper would work too)
An avocado (optional)
Spices: cumin, chili powder, sugar, garlic powder
Open an rinse the can of black beans. Pour the black beans with a half a can of water into the sauce pan. Set to a low simmer. Add a 1/2 teaspoon each of chili powder, sugar, and garlic powder. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin. Place a lid on the pot and allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Be sure to check occassionally and stir the beans around.
While the beans are cooking, you want to cut up your onion and red pepper. About 5 minutes before the beans are finished, sautee the red peppers and red onions in a skillet with a bit of olive oil. When the beans are done, assemble the tortilla: beans, sauteed peppers and onions, avocado, and sour cream. I love this.
Another option when you simmer the black beans is to add half a can of diced tomatos to the beans when you add the spices. This is also awfully tasty!
