Black Bean Tacos with Corn Salsa

Give taco night and incredible makeover. Whether you’re feeding diehard vegetarians or picky meat-eaters, this taco filling and salsa promise to be a home run! If you can’t find soft corn tortillas easily in your market, look for whole wheat tortillas as an alternative.

Ingredients

  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2½ cups canned low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 cup corn, thawed if frozen
  • 1 medium bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small green chile, diced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor, chop garlic. Add beans, oats, cornmeal, chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; process, stopping once or twice to scrape down sides, until mixture is combined, 1 minute.
  3. Crumble bean mixture with hands, sprinkle on prepared sheet, and coat with cooking spray. Bake until firm and crisp on bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Use a spoon to break up pieces, coat with cooking spray, and bake until crisp all over, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Stack tortillas and wrap in foil; warm in oven 5 minutes. In a bowl, combine corn, bell pepper, chile, scallions and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper; sprinkle with lime juice. Divide bean crumble among tortillas; top with corn salsa and cilantro.
