Vegan Black Bean Tacos


When I’m thinking Mexican, I resort to a black bean mixture that is spiced and warmed to serve as the basis of whatever dish I prepare – be it a dip, a filling, or a dish in it own right. Whatever I use the black bean mixture for, it’s bound to be an easy, no-fuss way to get the Mexican flavors quickly and most satisfyingly. Enjoy!

Black Beans: regulate blood sugar, are packed with soluble fiber, have anti-inflammatory properties, prevent cancer with its antioxidant potency, contribute to nervous system health, and are a rich source of molybdenum, which has detoxifying properties.

  • TACOS! Black bean tacos are absolutely one of the best simple dinners ever. 🙂

    Are taco shells vegan? I am new to being vegan and thought they would contain egg or milk…

    • You can make sure that yours are vegan. Some are just oil-based with flour and salt. check the ingredients label!

      I read the contents on my taco shells and they appear to be perfectly vegan. You may want to check the ingredients list when you are buying them. I am not sure about all taco shells out there.
