Black Bean Tacos


This is a paid collaboration with MexGrocerUK.

These black bean tacos are so simple to make and are absolutely delicious! I've teamed up with MexGrocerUK to bring you this incredibly delicious recipe, using a handful of Mexican ingredients from their website

These tacos are baked instead of fried, so they are a bit healthier! They're full of flavour and have the most amazing texture from the soft black beans, juicy tomatoes and crispy tortillas.

MexGrocer are also offering a free bottle of El Yucateco Chipotle Salsa with every order if you use the code "Shannon" at checkout!

  8. Add the taco filling on one side of each taco and sprinkle some vegan cheese on top. 
  9. Fold the taco in half and squish it down slightly so that it stays folded.
