Tacos + Avocado Sauce

by

Hey Dolls!!!!!!

Another day another recipe! So I don’t know about you but I am a huge fan of quick and easy recipes at the end of a long day. While I love cooking as much as the next girl, I hate spending two hours on my feet in the kitchen after running around all day, ya feel me? So when I try a delish recipe that doesn’t take my entire evening I just have to pass it along to you all! If you haven’t noticed by now, the hubs and I love spicy food so tacos are pretty much a weekly staple in our house and I think you’ll love these black bean tacos too! They easy and totally customizable, you can add whatever other ingredients you desire and make it your own!

Here’s what you need!

Instructions:

  1. For sauce: put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend. Tweak to taste and set aside/refrigerate until tacos are ready to serve.
  2. In a pan over medium heat, add black beans (rinsed and drained), salsa, corn and cumin. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. While the bean mix is heating, chop up your toppings and heat your tortillas if desired.
  4. Build your tacos! Bean mixture, avocado sauce, and then toppings! YUM!

TA-DA! So effortless and delish! I think we have some version of tacos every week and we never get sick of them. Plus the avocado sauce is literally to die for. I may or may not have been ‘taste testing’ it with my finger before the bean dip was done, hehe don’t tell the hubs. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s that good!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! I have ended up having more down time that I originally thought I would have while I am on this little ‘stay-cation’ and I have to say it’s felt pretty good! I’ve checked a lot of things off of my to-do list and managed to relax too which wasn’t necessarily on my list but I won’t complain. It’s hard for me to sit still on my days off because there is ALWAYS something I could be doing for my blog or our condo or a client, so making time for me without feeling guilty about it is a struggle. #perfectionistprobs But I know that every once in awhile my body needs to relax and so I will embrace it and take longer walks with Roo and drink my coffee a little slower and try to put my phone down! #thestruggleisrealย Any tips on how to unplug and relax without feeling guilty about it? Am I just too type A or what? I’m telling ya, if you or anyone in your life struggles with anxiety life can be really hard. Womp. #realtalk #wecandoit

Weย just have to take it one day at a time and tomorrow we CAN do better. ๐Ÿ™‚ย So pass the wine and have a great night!! Thanks for stopping by!
