Black Bean, Sweet Pepper & Cotija Cheese Tacos

with Creamy Lime-Spritzed Slaw

Cooking time

20 minutes




800 /serving

Black beans have your back when it comes to creating an easy, wholesome and flavourful filling for vegetarian tacos. They love nothing more than to be cooked up with garlic and sweet pepper, and to absorb their share of smoky spices, before being half-mashed for a more robust consistency. Bathe shredded cabbage in lime juice and mayo for a creamy-tangy slaw, season chopped cherry tomatoes and gather grated Cotija, then drop these three amigos onto heated tortillas.

  • 100g Shredded red cabbage
  • 15ml Minced garlic

Make the filling
In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Sauté ¾ of the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the sweet pepper and sauté, 2 to 3 min., until beginning to soften. Add the black beans, ¾ of the spices and ½ cup water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 min., until the liquid has reduced by about ¾. Remove from the heat and mash ½ the black beans; season with S&P.
