Hoff's Black Bean Tacos

That's right, Wednesday night is Taco Night at the Hoff House!  Usually I just mix a can of fat-free, vegetarian, refried beans with a bag of Uncle Ben's Spanish Ready Rice for a super quick meal.  But tonight, I decided to go a little healthier.  These tacos are simple and delicious!

Hoff's Black Bean Tacos
Makes 4 tacos
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free

  • Soft taco shells (4)
  • 1 can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 Red Onion, sliced
  • Avocado
  • Lime Juice
  • Sea Salt
  • Cumin
  • Cilantro
 Optional Toppings:
  • Sliced Black Olives
  • Salsa

  1. In a small frying pan, saute onion in a little water if necessary.  When turning translucent, add black beans and stir.  Add lime juice, sea salt, cumin and cilantro to taste.  Heat through.
  2. In a small bowl, mash together avocado, lime juice, sea salt and cilantro to taste.
  3. Combine black bean mixture with avocado mixture (or use as a spread).
  4. Microwave taco shells on a paper towel for 20 - 30 seconds.
  5. Time to chow - let the assembling of the tacos commence!

My2Cents: I usually serve my tacos with a side of lime tortilla chips or chopped mango - depends on how healthy I feel like being.
