The Easiest Black Bean Tacos

Black Bean Tacos | | The Recipe Redux

Recipe Index, Weeknight Meals | February 21, 2017 | By

Happy Taco Tuesday! I’m celebrating with The Recipe Redux with my too quick, too easy, too healthy, -and meatless- black bean tacos. It’s the perfect way to carry over Meatless Monday into Taco Tuesday.

 Tacos are one of my favorite meals, I could maybe even eat tacos each day and not get bored with them…. because there’s so many taco flavor combos. You can use nearly any type of meat or plant protein, any type of vegetables, and so many different ethnic sauces. They’re also one of my favorite ways to clean out my fridge. I add whichever veggies I have on hand, and love them all the same!
