Black Bean Corn Tacos


September 27, 2017

Tacos! Bravo! Delicioso! Fantastico! I cannot overstate the importance of tacos. Why? They’re crazy fast and easy to make. They’re over the top delicious. They’re low in calories. They’re inexpensive. Am I making myself clear? You should have some tacos and think about what I’ve said here. It must be Cinco de Mayo somewhere, right?  Ole’!

  • Yields: 4 Servings


2 cans black beans (unsalted) (or 4 cups cooked)

1 can of corn, drained or 2 cups frozen corn, cooked and drained

8 cloves of garlic, minced

2 1/2 tsp roasted cumin

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 lime, juiced

dash of fresh ground pepper


1Pour a little liquid from the beans into the pan and heat over medium. When hot, stir in garlic, cumin, and maple syrup. Saute for 5-6 minutes until garlic is softened. Add more bean juice if needed to prevent from drying.

2Add beans and a little of the liquid and heat through over medium heat. Add the corn and stir gently to not break up the beans.

3Add lime juice and taste test. Adjust seasonings to taste if desired.

4Serve with small corn tortillas, salsa and/or guacamole, rice, diced onions and/or diced tomatoes and/or lettuce.

These are great!

Glad you are adding the nutritional info. My interest in this is more for easily obtaining accurate carbs per serving information; not for nutrition chasing, but because this information is important for diabetics.

Hi Diane,

We are working on adding that information and it will likely be part of our app. We are using cronometer and I think Chris is putting information in the back end of our recipes already, but it’s just not displayed.

One of the directions we want to go in is to not worry so much about macroconfusion and nutritionism, but to rather just use the food triangle and keep eating right. Many people may be unintentionally driving chronic overnutrition chasing nutrition, when it appears that less is more in most of the healthspan/longevity research. Ultimately, we want our site focused on tasty side dishes and not turn it into yet another online debate about biochemistry and physiology.

Thanks for your comment!
