After traveling all week, Jon wanted some “spicy Jen food” so I decided to make black bean tacos. I started off with some diced onions and minced garlic (what else!), then added in two cans of diced green chile peppers. After everything had sauteed together for a little while, then I added in lots of cumin, some red chili pepper flakes, and a litttle bit of cayenne pepper.

After the cumin heated up a little bit, then came the black beans. I took the easy route of using canned beans (a lot of times I will start with dried beans), and then added in some diced tomatoes, as well. Last, I grated some lime zest into the mixture to give a little bit of a sour kick.

While the bean mixture simmered away, I decided to make some guacamole. I diced up a green onion, an avacado, and some baby tomatoes. After adding in some fresh squeezed lime juice, a little salt, pepper, and hot sauce, the guacamole was ready to go!

I chopped up some romaine lettuce, spooned the bean mixture into taco shells, and dinner was ready. Yum!
