Crispy Black Bean Tacos

Prep Time:

15 minutes

Cook Time:


4 Servings


About the Recipe


  • 1 (14-ounce) can of black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa

  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning

  • 6–8 small flour tortillas

  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil or butter for frying 

Cilantro Lime Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup avocado oil

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions

  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Juice of 2 limes

  • 1/2 cup sour cream (sub avocado to keep it dairy free / vegan)


Step 1

Blend all ingredients in the cilantro lime sauce until smooth-ish. Set aside. 

Step 2

In a food processor or chopper, blend the beans, salsa, and taco seasoning. Transfer to a skillet with a drizzle of oil and cook it up long enough to soften the flavors of the garlic and / or onions in the salsa. About 5 minutes is fine.

Step 3

Spread a few tablespoons of black bean filling into a flour tortilla. Fold in half. Repeat until the filling is used up (about 6-8 tacos).

Step 4

Heat some oil or butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry in a skillet over medium heat, until crispy and golden brown. Dip in cilantro lime sauce. Serve with chips and salsa and a mid-week margarita. You’re welcome.
