Avocado Black Bean Tacos
I hope you had an awesome Fathers Day weekend!! We had alot of fun, we bought my husband a whole bunch of snacky foods to take to his job, made homemade vanilla chocolate chip cupcakes with homemade chocolate butter cream frosting and grilled out! We finished our evening with movie night and watched Sherlock Holmes 2.
It is nice to spend time with the people you love making memories!!!
On Friday, I had no idea what I was making for dinner, I knew I had black beans thawing in the fridge, but other than that I was clueless.
So..I made tacos again. I don't know if it is because the weather is hot, or I am just pure lazy, but I have been making tacos alot lately.
These tacos are so easy that I really don't know if you need a recipe for it or not, so I will give you a basic idea of prep.
Unbelievably easy Avocado Black Bean Tacos
2 cups black beans, canned or homemade are fine
2 cups jasmine, basmati, brown or white rice, whatever you have is fine.
1-2 avocado's, I mush mine up
2 whole tomatoes, diced
1 small onion, diced
Homemade salsa, recipe follows
Flour or corn tortilla's, fried or steamed, your choice
Assemble and eat to your hearts content!
This is our favorite salsa that I make, I hope you will like it just as much as we do!
Super easy Salsa
1 28 oz.can crushed tomatoes
1/2 jar diced jalapenos, drained
1/2 yellow onion, cut into quarters
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. lime juice
Place all of the ingredients together into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Serve with tortilla chips, and pour onto everything!
I am going to go prep my next blog, a really yummy soup we like alot around here.
