Black Bean Tacos


Mexican food is always great to eat out, but I haven't made it too often at home. My mom told me about a taco salad she had recently that was made with a black bean burger rather than black beans. I thought using black bean burgers would be a good idea to make tacos.

Ingredients:
-8 corn tacos
-4 black bean burgers
-1/2 cup red onion
-3/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
-chopped cilantro

Mash up burgers, and mix in the chopped onion.
Set out the tacos pan.
Our pan only fit 6 at a time.
Add the bean mixture in the bottom of each shell.

Cover with cheese.
Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Top with some cilantro to taste.
We like to drink margaritas with our tacos.

These tacos would probably be on the list of the best things we have made. Since I'm not a vegetarian, I usually just eat my tacos with meat, but these were even better. They were really filling and had a better taste than a normal taco. The pepper jack cheese made a difference too, I thought it was better than a regular Mexican blend because it added a little heat. The pepper jack cheese also melted nicely on top. This is a great recipe to make for a large group, because it is easy adjust to make large quantities, and vegetarian or not, everyone will enjoy them.
