Black Bean Tacos

I've been playing around with different bean taco recipes. I've made several using flour tortillas, corn tortillas, black beans, red beans, refried and more. This recipe I've made a few times and really enjoy.

1 Can Black Beans rinsed and drained
1/2 bag frozen corn(steamed or thawed)
1 cup thick salsa(like pace)
1 small red bell pepper diced
1 small green pepper diced
1/2 small red onion diced
3 green onions sliced, whites and greens
Thinly sliced cabbage
1 small diced tomato
shredded cheddar cheese
corn tortillas
First in one small skillet I saute the peppers and onions in small amount of olive oil until just barely tender.
Set aside, and in another skillet mix beans, corn and salsa until heated through:

Warm corn tortilla and layer first the bean mixture, followed by the pepper mixture, then top with cabbage, cheese and tomatoes! Yum!
You can also just add the pepper mixture without cooking. I like the crispness of the uncooked veggies, but like the flavor that's brought out through cooking. Either way is yummy.

We love black beans. Being married to a Cuban does have a tendency to push us in that direction. We love in any way, shape or from.

Glad you are posting again on this blog. Have missed you deeply!
