I gave a lot of thought as to what should be the very first recipe I feature on my blog. A recipe of my own? One that is tried and true? Something fancy? Simple? I could never quite decide and while making dinner tonight I decided to take some pics and if they turned out okay, this would be the one! It is pretty much none of the above, but I have made it a handful of times, I love it, and it is quite healthy--very fitting for this first week of the new year.
Here are all of the ingredients you'll need for this recipe:
Super simple, right?!? I almost always have all of these ingredients on hand.
Below are a few shots I took while actually making the tacos. I am trying to get a little bit better at photography, in hopes of my husband buying me a fancy shmancy Nikon someday...
The slaw with Feta. I like to add mine directly into the slaw instead of sprinkling on to the finished product. I feel the Feta is more equally distributed this way...
Please note the stray black beans in the frying pan. This will happen to you!
A close up of the finished product! Please do not forget the hot sauce.
These tacos are delicious, easy, and healthy. You should really give them a try!
Black Bean Tacos
Recipe from Bon Appetit, February 2009
Makes 4 tacos/2 servings
1 15oz can black beans, drained
1/2 tsp ground cumin
5 tsp(or more--I never have been able to fry all 4 tacos in the mere 3 tsp this recipe calls for) olive oil, divided
1 TBSP fresh lime juice
2 cups coleslaw mix
2-3 green onions, chopped
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
4 white or yellow corn tortillas
1/3 cup crumpled feta cheese
Bottled hot sauce(I use tabasco)
Place beans and cumin in a small bowl; partially mash. Mix 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and lime juice in a medium bow; add coleslaw, green onions, and cilantro and toss to coat. NOTE: this is also when I add in the feta cheese. Season the slaw to taste with salt and pepper. DO NOT forget the salt and pepper.
Heat 3 tsps(or more as I mentioned above) olive oil in a nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Add tortillas, one at a time. Spoon 1/4 cup bean mixture into half of the tortilla; cook 1 minute. Fold tacos in half. Cook until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Fill tacos with the slaw and feta. Drizzle hot sauce on top, if desired. I desire. Repeat for each tortilla.
