h makes killer black bean tacos... they are a tasty way for me to incorporate healthy protein into my diet! they are packed with veggies and include almost all of my favorite simple salsa ingredients.
1/4 bell pepper diced
1/4 white or purple onion diced
sauté vegetables in a pan (spray with pam before adding veggies)
mix in and cook:
2 - large cloves of garlic diced
dice a large bunch of cilantro (we LOVE this stuff)
1 - medium tomato diced
1 - 16 oz. can of black beans (rinse before adding)
4 oz (1/2 can of small can) of whole kernel sweet corn
4 - tablespoons of lowfat cream cheese (this is basically the only "fattening" ingredient in the recipe, so add as much or as little as you'd like)
1/4 - cup of water
stir frequently until the the sauce thickens up, remove the top to let the water boil off.
fill your taco (i like to heat my flour shells on a pan until they are crispy, no pam or oil required). top with cheese or shredded cabbage (i like to buy a bag of coleslaw mix: shredded cabbage and carrots and i use it dry like lettuce to add some crunch in wraps, sandwiches and on tacos). this recipe serves 1 hungry h and 1 jill or 4 when you serve with a side of rice.
