Meatless Taco Tuesday

Sometimes when I get home late from work, all I want to do is scrounge up a bag of chips and make a plate of nachos … although, we all know that is NOT the smartest move … 

And then, when I’m running behind schedule, or just plain tired after leaving the office to go straight to the gym and then home to make dinner, I have a tendency to NOT follow the recipe, but usually, things turn out right, just depends on what you expectations may be at that very moment!

Either way, these were good, and it was an excellent way to use up the bag of coleslaw I had hanging around in the fridge … 

Ready to find out what you need and how to do it?

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tsp cumin 
1 bag of coleslaw mix
1 lime
2 tsp olive oil
2 wedges Laughing Cow Queso and chipolte
8 corn tortillas
cilantro, finely chopped, optional

Empty the beans into a small bowl and add the cumin. Lightly mash beans and set aside.

In another bowl, add lime and oil, lightly mix. Dump the bag of coleslaw and toss (with clean hands) to coat. Set aside.

Take a griddle and place over medium heat. Add a little oil and let heat up.

In the meantime, spread each of the 8 tortillas with a 1/4 of the wedge of cheese. Add tortilla to griddle (cheese side UP) and add about a 1/4 cup on bean mix.

Fold over in half and allow to cook til one side is golden brown, flip and continue til golden brown.

Remove to board while you fix the rest.

When ready to serve, open each up gently and toss in a generous amount of coleslaw mix. Garnish with cilantro if using and serve up.

Princess came in and was like “yummm…what are those!?” even though she had just eaten! She ate 2 … Hubby ate 4 I ate 2 … I seriously don’t think Hubby missed his usual protein, MEAT and they were pretty filling!

  1. Those look delicious. I love meatless tacos and we use tortillas in a variety of ways to make them meatless, which is much cheaper than buying beef for tacos these days. I watched a DVD by Mary McDougall (plant based diet) and she mixes lime with her coleslaw for tacos too. I've had it on my to do list for a while now. Definitely going to have to try it soon.


  2. Your meatless tacos look delicious and a nice change from ordinary ones. Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!Cheers,Kathy Shea MorminoThe Chicken Chick
