Black Bean Tacos with Guacamole

Who doesn’t like a good taco even if it isn’t on Tuesday? I know I haven’t blogged in such a long time. So much has been going on, I was even thinking of hanging up this whole blogging gig but I did end up missing sharing my recipes and thoughts so here is a fun recipe I thought to share.

I made these tacos for Cinco de Mayo since it fell on a Tuesday, yes I love a great celebration, even if it is just for me and yes I love Taco Tuesdays! Did you know it has been around since 1982 but Taco John’s filed for a trademark in 1989? I had no idea its been a thing for so long and there is actually a trade mark for it, who knew. Thank you Google.

Any way lets get to the very easy recipe. First the Guacamole recipe. It is easy with only a few ingredients, I kept it basic.


Avocados ( I used two)

1/2 Tomato diced

1/4 White Onion diced

1 Tablespoon Chunky Paste Garlic ( I love garlic so you may want less or even more)

Cilantro diced the amount is per your taste I used about 1 Tablespoon

1 Fresh Lime squeezed

Your choice of Hot Sauce, Salt/Pepper to taste

Peel and dice the avocados, add rest of ingredients. I like mine chunky so I just I just did a quick mash of the avocados but you can use a food processor if you wish.

Now for the these amazing Tacos!

Black bean Tacos:

1 can of black beans drained and rinsed

1/4 white onion diced

1 Tablespoon of chunky garlic paste

1 Tablespoon of chunky red pepper paste ( or less if you prefer)

Salt/Pepper per taste

1 small package of white corn tortillas

Grated Cheese (optional)

Add all but the beans to a hot pan that has a small amount of oil then sauté when the onions are almost transloosent add the beans to warm them then do a quick mash leaving some chunks. Remove pan from heat.


In a small pan add oil, heat the oil to a pretty hot temperature. As the pan and oil heat up get one corn tortilla that is slightly warm (makes taco easier to fold, you can warm up the tortillas by warping them in a damp cloth in a microwave) place a small amount of the bean mixture on half of tortilla and if you are using cheese add some grated cheese at this time, place in the hot oil and fold. let it start to get brown then flip to cook the other side. This should go fast so you do need to stay by the stovetop.

Serve the tacos with the guacamole and top with extra cilantro, enjoy. This is not the healthiest of tacos I eat but they are quick and easy even if you do need to stay and watch the tacos.
