These healthy Black Bean and Corn Tacos have a spicy black bean and corn filling. They are a quick and easy meal.
These Black Bean and Corn Tacos have onions, garlic, and taco spices. Corn balances out the savory and spicy notes with a sweet note.
Normally I use soft corn tortillas for tacos. Living in Tucson, Arizona, I've been exposed and influenced by a lot of authentic Mexican cuisine.
Hard shell tacos are not authentic Mexican cuisine. They are an Americanized version of a taco.
That does not make them a bad thing though. Quite the contrary.
It's fun eating tacos with a crunchy taco shell. They are like eating tortilla chips with a spicy filling.
The black bean and corn mixture is sweet and spicy. It is really easy to make.
I mashed about half of the black beans. That not only lets them soak up the spicy flavors, but it makes them easier to eat in a taco.
You don't want beans falling out of your taco, do you?
