A.B.C. Tacos

Yes, it really is that easy but the ABC really just serves to remind you of the basic ingredients.  Ready for it?  Avocado – Black Beans – Corn.  I know, so super simple.

My kids and I really love this easy, instant taco filling rolled in a Romaine leaf.  If you prefer a more traditional taco, be sure to make your tortillas in advance or purchase a healthier version from your local health food store for a quick (but healthy) fix on a busy day.  Either way, it’s delicious, satisfying and loaded with benefits.


1 1/2 cups or 1 can prepared Black Beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup Fire-Roasted Corn (I used frozen & thawed.  You may also substitute plain raw corn)

1-2 Avocados, chopped

Serve in a Romaine leaf, atop a bed of greens, in Ezekiel tortillas, Whole Wheat Tortillas, or Organic Corn Tortillas

Top it off with fresh diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce and some of your other taco faves.

For the Seasoning:

1 1/2 tsp Cumin

1 tsp Chili Powder

1/2-3/4 tsp Sea Salt

1/4 tsp Chipotle Powder (may be substituted with more chili powder to reduce heat)

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Paprika

Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper, optional

(NOTE:  I normally triple this recipe to have extra on hand for other crazy busy days when I just need to add fast flavor to tofu, beans, eggs, or any number of thrown-together dishes.)


Place black beans, corn & avocado in a medium bowl.

Add 1-2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning and toss to evenly coat.  Taste and add more seasoning, as desired.

Scoop into Romaine leaves or taco shells or serve over a bed of chopped greens for a taco salad with favorite toppings and add-ons.
