Black Bean Tacos

I have found the secret to eating tacos guilt free — it’s in these Black Bean Tacos! I am not kidding at all — I have found my new favorite recipe!  After making my Black Bean and Corn Salad a couple of summers ago, I fell in love with black beans.

This dish is fresh, colorful and will make you feel good about eating tacos. And if you like a little kick to your tacos, the Mole Sauce provides you with the sweat factor.  This is something you can play with to find out what is the perfect heat for you and your family.

Once you eat these Black Bean Tacos — you will never go back.

Once you have drained and rinsed your black beans, add them to the skillet and cook for another 3-4 minutes.  Add the Mole Sauce to the skillet so it will cook with the beans and other veggies.

You can make these with the hard taco shells or soft tortillas.  I liked the hard taco shells, but I loved that you can wrap up the soft flour or corn tortillas to keep all of the goodness inside the taco.  Of course you look the crunch but it’s worth it in the seasoning.

Serve with a salad or rice. Your family will devour these tacos!
