These 20 Minute BBQ Black Bean Tacos are SO easy to make and so delicious! They’re perfect for a family weeknight dinner!
It doesn’t get much better than 20 minute tacos! These 20 Minute BBQ Black Bean Tacos are so flavorful and delicious, I have a feeling they might just be your new favorite weeknight dinner!
I first made this homemade BBQ sauce when I published my Vegetarian Sloppy Joe recipe a few years ago and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s not a super traditional BBQ sauce but it’s one of my favorite sauces and I love pairing it with beans.
Late in my pregnancy I’ve been craving (vegetarian) sloppy joes and last time I made them I got the idea to add some black beans to the BBQ sauce and throw them in some tacos. It’s been one of my best ideas lately! 🙂 I also love that this recipe only takes 20 minutes because these days it’s getting harder and harder to stand in the kitchen for longer than 20 minutes.
I added a little more cumin than usual to this version of my BBQ sauce to give it a little more Mexican/Taco flavor and it turned out so delicious! I have to admit that I didn’t share any of these tacos with my husband and ate them for 3 days straight all by myself 🙂 They’re seriously that good!
Other delicious uses for these BBQ Black Beans include: dipping chips into, throwing onto of a taco salad or just enjoying as a side dish like you would baked beans. I’m not sure if it’s just my pregnancy cravings but I find them seriously addicting and am thinking I need to make another batch to stock the freezer with for after baby comes.
