Crunchy Black Bean Taco Recipe

 My husband and I are trying to lose weight and eat healthier.  The thing that I miss the most is going out to eat.  These tacos taste just like they came from a restaurant and are so easy to make!

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro
  • 4 ounces pepper jack cheese, grated
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 avocado (optional)
  • Salsa, optional
  • Sour cream, optional


  1. In a medium bowl, combine beans (drained and rinsed), minced red onion, cumin, paprika and chopped cilantro.  Grate cheese and place in a small bowl.  Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. Place one tortilla at a time on the hot skillet and add about 1/4 cup of bean filling to one half of the tortilla.  Top with a sprinkle of grated cheese. 
  3. Use a spatula to carefully fold the tortilla over so it forms a shell.  Press down lightly on the tortilla with the spatula so it holds its shape.  Cook each taco for about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and crispy.  Serve with avocado, salsa, sour cream or any toppings you prefer.

  1. I made these for lunch today. I added some pre-cooked hamburger I had left over from tacos I made earlier this week into my boyfriend's black bean tacos since he is a meat man. I made him try one without the hamburger and one with and he preferred the one with, but I made mine as the recipe lists. They were really good especially with avocado slices. Thanks for sharing!
