I love to solve your dinner dilemmas.
And one thing I am REALLY good at is taking what seems like an empty kitchen and making something from nothing. I can’t tell you how many people text me in a week and say, Hey Kristen I have x, y, and z in my pantry–what can I make for dinner?
There is thrill for me in that challenge.

Tips on Easy Black Bean Tacos
- Your family doesn’t like black beans? Or you only have Pinto Beans in your pantry–no sweat, use whatever beans you have or you like!
- I spread the black bean mixture into Hard Corn Taco Shells to keep these Gluten-Free Black Bean Tacos. However, you can use any taco shell or tortilla you would like.
- I love to use sharp white cheddar cheese on these Baked Tacos, but use any cheese you like (feta is great and so is good old mild cheddar.) Or keep the cheese off for a Vegan Black Bean Taco.
- Top Black bean tacos anyway you like. My family loves shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, but avocados, sour cream, hot sauce, onions, etc would all be great options for toppings.
