Black Bean, Corn & Poblano Tacos

I’m a chicken taco kind of girl. Always have been. I don’t think a recipe like this would have appealed to me as much if I wasn’t eating vegan for the month, but I made it a couple weeks ago and it will definitely stick around in my meal rotation. This can be vegan or vegetarian depending on whether you want the cheese and sour cream. Either way, it’s a great vegetarian taco recipe to have on hand.

I made the salsa verde and corn tortillas (more on that later) from scratch and cooked a big pot of dried black beans a few days prior so used those. Of course canned beans work well too. It made quite a bit of filling too so I just kept it in a bowl in the fridge and used it for lunches for a couple days. If you are trying to go meatless more often, you should definitely try these.

I think part of the reason why these tacos were so awesome was because of the homemade corn tortillas. They had that delicious, fresh corn flavor and were a cinche to make. I’ll be back soon with a post on those tortillas which you don’t want to miss! Until then, feel free to use your favorite brand of corn or flour tortillas for this recipe. The filling would even be delicious stuffed in a quesadilla.

    Hi Honey! Those look and sound wonderful–and can’t wait to see recipe for the tortillas! Yes, we are chicken girls but am trying to do more vegetarian dishes (thanks to your great ideas!)–the mushrooms are a great idea since they are so meaty anyway! xo Mimi
