Ok, a couple of people asked me for this recipe when I said it’s what I was having for dinner, so I tried to write it out for you. You can experiment with the seasoning – maybe you like it a bit spicier, maybe you’d like more cumin, it’s totally up to you! Mess around with it and have fun!
Let me know how it turns out!
High-five like you mean it!
ps – I also don’t have any fancy pics of the tacos because….well, I ate them. So a pic of the beans I used will have to do!
Chick Pea and Black Bean Tacos
1 can of chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 small onion diced
1 red pepper diced
1-2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 cup of water (you may want to add a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up)
Seasoning (this should make a bunch, I like to store the excess in a mason jar for my next fiesta!)
1-2 tbsps of chili powder (I’m a suck so I use very little, you can always add more to your dish)
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp of smoked paprika
1 tbsp of sea salt
2 tsps of onion powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp black pepper
Saute the onion, peppers and garlic in a skillet until soft and slightly browned. Add the chick peas, black beans, seasoning and water. Simmer until liquid has reduced and you have a slightly thicker consistency.
Serve with whole wheat tortillas, fresh avocado, lettuce and whatever other toppings you enjoy!
