Last night was taco night! I love family taco night. It’s super fast and easy to make lighter and healthier by adding tons of veggies. You can check out some of my tricks by clicking here for my basic Taco Night post or click here to watch my taco night video.
With the tacos I usually like to make at least one side dish that actually ends up being my taco filler as it’s usually bean based like Spicy Black Beans and Zucchini. Well last night was no different except I had a craving for crunchy chips dipped in salsa. So I decided to make a hearty salsa/taco filler with what I had on hand. This is what I came up with. . .
- 1 15oz can black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 15oz can diced tomatoes (preferably petite but I didn’t have any)
- 1 7oz can corn drained
- 1 green bell pepper diced
- 2 thinck slices of sweet onion diced
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1 tsp tabasco sauce
- 1 tbsp dried cilantro
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp dried cumin
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
We dipped baked scoops in it and used it as salsa on our tacos. Actually I used it as my taco filling. I didn’t even miss the meat. ;)
I loosely measured out 9 1/2 cups so I’m going to use that as a serving.
