Black Bean Tacos

meatless tacos

I have a family of meat eaters and when I say Taco Tuesday, they automatically assume that mom (ME) will be drinking a margarita (or two), there will be lots of ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning and loads of shredded cheddar cheese, fresh salsa, guacomole, sour cream, shredded lettuce and heated toritalla shells ... 

But every once in awhile, I will surprise them ... and sometimes, they aren't very happy ... Princess and Hubby love this ... the Boy? Not so much, although, he's coming around in his old age and starting to finally (at long, long last) eat different things ... 

Ready to find out what you need and how to do it?

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tsp cumin 
1 bag of coleslaw mix
1 lime
2 tsp olive oil
2 wedges Laughing Cow Queso and chipolte
8 corn tortillas
cilantro, finely chopped, optional

Empty the beans into a small bowl and add the cumin. Lightly mash beans and set aside.

In another bowl, add lime and oil, lightly mix. Dump the bag of coleslaw and toss (with clean hands) to coat. Set aside.

Take a griddle and place over medium heat. Add a little oil and let heat up.

In the meantime, spread each of the 8 tortillas with a 1/4 of the wedge of cheese. Add tortilla to griddle (cheese side UP) and add about a 1/4 cup on bean mix.

Fold over in half and allow to cook til one side is golden brown, flip and continue til golden brown.

Remove to cutting board or platter while you fix the rest.

When ready to serve, open each up gently and toss in a generous amount of coleslaw mix. Garnish with cilantro if using and serve up.

Princess will eat 2, 3 or 4 if she's really hungry (petite little thing that can eat alot) Hubby can eat 4 and would probably eat more if there was any ... I generally eat 2 ... these ARE pretty filling
