What do you put in black bean tacos?
Once you add the Mexican black beans you can add whatever you like! We love adding fresh Pico de Gallo, shredded lettuce (we use romaine lettuce), homemade taco sauce, shredded vegan cheddar cheese, and guacamole on the side.
We use fresh corn tortillas or grain free taco shells.
