Bean There, Done That (Black Bean Taco)

Now, I can finally tell people that I’ve made tacos before!

This is going to be a combo post folks. I’m going to combine the ingredients and process into one post since I haven’t been diligent enough and the week is almost over!

I went a little rogue and didn’t end up following any specific recipes. Also, I kind of just eyeballed everything, so I have no specific measurements. Sorry!

I ended up using your basic taco ingredients:

I used a red onion, a roma tomato, and some pre-shredded lettuce.

Pre-shredded cheese!

And some snack-sized flour tortillas.

Oh, and let’s not forget the star of the show. Black beans!

Again, I didn’t use any specific measurements… just my best judgement! You guys trust me, right?

Now let’s move on to how I put all of this together…

I diced up my tomatoes and put them to the side as a topping for later. I did the same to my red onions. I was actually thinking about just adding the onions as a topping as well. But since I was doing my own thing with this recipe…

Why not just mix in my red onions with the black beans? So, I cooked my onions and beans over medium heat.

Then I started thinking that maybe the beans and onions might not give the taco enough flavor, so I decided to add a bit of garlic powder!

After my beans and onions were finished, I topped the rest of my ingredients on my tortilla!

You can see the final product tomorrow in all of its glory along with my impressions. See ya!
