One of our favorite things about tacos is how versatile they are. There are literally hundreds of taco recipes out there to choose from, but unfortunately, they aren’t all created equal when it comes to taste and nutritional value. Many of the recipes we come across are loaded with greasy or unhealthy add-ins, but not this one! Roasted Corn and Black Bean Tacos are made with only 100% whole food ingredients, and they don’t sacrifice anything when it comes to flavor.
Perfect for Meatless Mondays, this black bean taco recipe combines with our roasted corn recipe for a scrumptious meat-free meal option. Top these tacos with a dollop of our Guacamole Verde, and you’ve got a taste that can’t be beat! Hosting Taco Tuesday for a larger crowd? Try serving your taco ingredients in a Fiesta Taco Tray.

- 4 small soft corn or whole wheat tortillas, warmed (recipe for Homemade Tortillas)
- 1 cup corn (recipe for Easy Oven Roasted Corn)
- 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
- ½ tsp red chili flakes (divided)
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans (rinsed and drained)
- Juice from 1 lime
- ¼ tsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup sliced red onion
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium non-stick skillet, toss together the corn and olive oil over medium high heat. Add ¼ tsp red chili flakes (or more if you like a little extra spice) and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Allow the corn to cook in the olive oil, stirring occasionally – This will take approximately 5-6 minutes. Remove and set aside when corn is tender and slightly browned.
Meanwhile, mix the lime juice, garlic, ¼ tsp red chili flakes, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Whisk until all ingredients are combined. Set aside.
In the skillet, combine black beans and chili-lime juice mixture. Heat the beans over medium heat and allow them to absorb the chili-lime mixture. This will take approximately 3 minutes.
Spoon the black beans and corn into warm tortillas and sprinkle with the slicked red onions and chopped cilantro.
Serve warm and enjoy!
