Black Bean Tacos

This recipe is a healthier alternative to tacos with ground beef or chicken.


2 cups cooked black beans, semi mashed

10 taco shells

1 ½ tsp olive oil

½ jalapeno. Seeded and minced (I skipped this ingredient)

1 cup diced onion

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1-2 TB lemon juice

1 TB Braggs Liquid Aminos or soy sauce

2 TB medium taco sauce (I used salsa)

1 TB cumin

½ tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp garlic powder

1 ½ tsp coriander

¼ tsp oregano

¼ tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp paprika

Salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the red pepper flakes, onion and jalapeno.  Sauté about 4 minutes, then add the garlic.  Stir and cook another 3-4 minutes.

Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir regularly, cooking about 10-15 minutes.  Taste occasionally and adjust spices as needed.

Add lettuce and tomatoes and enjoy!
