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!
- 2 15oz cans black beans
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 cup corn
- 1 tsp. cumin
- corn tortillas
- optional toppings: red onion, cheese, lettuce, tomato
- 1-2 ripe avocados
- 3/4 cup cilantro, stems removed
- juice from 1 lime
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tbsp. olive oik
- 1 tsp. honey
- a pinch of salt
- 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.
- In a pan over medium heat, add black beans (rinsed and drained), salsa, corn and cumin. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
- While the bean mix is heating, chop up your toppings and heat your tortillas if desired.
- 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. 🙂 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! #thestruggleisreal 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
We just have to take it one day at a time and tomorrow we CAN do better. 🙂 So pass the wine and have a great night!! Thanks for stopping by!
