black bean tacos

my family requested that i make my shrimp tacos for dinner the other night, but a last minute problem with the shrimp resulted in a slight menu change. i swapped the shrimp for black beans and no one even missed the meat (a sign of a successful vegetarian meal)!

black bean tacos (serves 4)

12 organic corn tortillas

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder

2 cups shredded green cabbage
pinch salt
juice of 1 lime

avocado, chopped
cotija cheese, crumbled
white onion, chopped

mash black beans in a bowl with lime, garlic, and chili powder. in a separate bowl, toss cabbage with lime and salt and let it "marinate" for a bit. before serving, warm tortillas in a pan over medium heat with a little bit of olive oil. spread black bean mixture on tortillas, top with cotija cheese, cabbage, avocado, cilantro and onion.
