Easy Black Bean Tacos

Black Bean Tacos

I don’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen most nights (Who’s kidding, any night).

It may seem like I’m always in the kitchen, but my goal is to always make a nutritious meal in the least amount of time. That’s why I love using black beans to make easy dish’s.

I’m a big believer in healthy food being delicious and not taking hours to prepare. That’s why today I’m sharing one of my go-to weeknight meals with you. If you like tacos, but think they require too much prep, then this spin on tacos will be right up your alley. It’s a one pan meal and the avocado cream sauce will have you licking the spoon.
