|10 min||20 min||4|
|2 tbsp||Grape seed oil (for frying)|
|1 can (15oz)||Black beans, canned (drained & rinsed; Bean Filling)|
|1/2 cup||Red onion (minced; Bean Filling)|
|2 clove(s)||Garlic (minced; Bean Filling)|
|2 tbsp||Cilantro (coriander) (minced; Bean Filling)|
|1/2 tsp||Cumin (Bean Filling)|
|1 tsp||Paprika, smoked (Bean Filling)|
|1 pinch||Salt (Bean Filling)|
|8 medium tortilla(s)||Tortilla, corn|
|1 cup, shredded||Cheddar cheese, sharp (topping)|
|1 avocado(s)||Avocado (topping)|
|1/4 cup||Salsa, ready-to-serve, low sodium, hot/medium (topping)|
|1/4 cup||Sour cream, 14% M.F. (topping)|
1. In a large, non-stick skillet add oil and heat over medium-high heat.
2. Mix the bean filling by combining beans, onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika and salt in a bowl and tossing.
3. Add one corn tortilla at a time and let each get hot in the oil for a few seconds. Then add about 1/4 cup of the bean filling to one half of the tortilla. Top with a sprinkle of grated cheese. Try not to overfill the tacos, or you might have issues flipping them without losing filling. (see notes)
4. Using a spatula, carefully fold the other half of the tortilla over to form a shell. Press down lightly on the tortilla so it holds its shape. As the first taco cooks, move it to the side and begin a second one. Depending on the size of your pan, you can cook two or three tacos at once. A griddle will hold even more.
5. Cook each taco until they are nicely browned and crispy, about 3 minutes per side. When flipping the taco to cook on the other side, use a spatula and flip the taco toward the fold so the filling doesn’t fall out. If your pan is very dry between batches, add more oil.
6. Place the cooked tacos in a warm oven while you finish the rest. If the tacos are very greasy, blot them with a paper towel before moving them to the oven.
7. Serve tacos with avocado, salsa and sour cream or toppings of choice. Enjoy!
To make this super easy, you can simply skip warming the tacos and simply fill the taco shells with the ingredients and toppings.
