It’s no secret that tacos are simple to make and you can customize them to your liking. To me, tacos are like pizza: You can toss a bunch of veggies into a taco shell, but it’s still a taco. Lately, I have been working on eating a lot healthier, so I have been eating loads more veggies and adding veggies to the occasional smoothie. The beauty of it is that it’s been cheap, and the recipe that I have for you all this week is very cheap to make, too! Let’s get started with these Black Bean Tacos so you don’t have to read any more of my babbling!

Black Bean Tacos
1/2 can black beans
2–4 leaves kale (or lettuce), chopped
4 taco shells

  • Warm up the beans by tossing them into a pan and heating them on low for about 5 to 10 minutes, or follow the instructions on the can.
  • Wash the kale (or lettuce) and chop so that you have thin slices that will fit nicely inside a taco shell.
  • Put about 3 tablespoonfuls of black beans in each taco shell.  
  • Add some kale.
  • Add some guacamole.
  • Add some salsa.
  • Chow down!

Makes 4 tacos

This is a super-simple, no-frills recipe that can be customized to your liking. If you want to add some vegan sour cream or vegan cheese to change things up, go for it! Prep your taco, and get to munchin’ already!
