Black Bean Tacos Recipe

Black Bean Tacos

Serves 4
Make this easy bean filling for burritos or tacos. You can also use the salsa and warm taco filling as a dip with tortilla chips.


  • Tacos:
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 can (10 oz) Rotel tomatoes or diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 2 cans black beans with liquid
  • 1 cup of water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Flour or corn tortillas, warmed
  • 4 cups spinach leaves
  • Avocado Salsa:
  • 2 ripe avocados, diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Additional toppings: hot sauce, sour cream,shredded cheese, diced green onions, more cilantro


  1. Combine ingredients for salsa 1 hour before to let flavor develop. Cover tightly.
  2. Make filling: Sauté the onion in the oil until softened, about 8 minutes. Add cumin, tomatoes, beans and water. Let simmer to thicken and reduce for about 20 minutes. Use a potato masher to lightly mash beans and thicken sauce. Leave most beans whole. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. When ready to assemble, place bean mixture on warmed tortilla, top with avocado salsa, spinach, and additional toppings if you are using them. Roll up your soft taco burrito-style to eat.
