Mixed Bean Tacos

  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 2 15 oz cans any variety of Beans, drained and rinsed
  • Flour or Corn Tortillas
  • Toppings of your choice (I used avocado, green onions, tomatoes and shredded cheese.)


1. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
2. Add onion and cook 5-8 minutes or until very soft and translucent. Stir in garlic and spices and cook for 1 minute.
3. Stir in beans and 1/2 cup water and bring mixture to a simmer. Smash half of the beans using the back  of wooden spoon or potato masher. Continue to simmer until mixture is thickened and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. Serve with warmed tortillas and toppings.
