These Vegan Black Bean Tacos are so easy to make and perfect for a vegan weeknight dinner!


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cans black beans, drained with liquid reserved
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 Corn tortillas
  • Optional toppings: cabbage, onion, avocado, tomato, salsa


  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil and onions.  Cook for a few minutes, add garlic and cook another 30 seconds.
  2. Add the black beans and all the spices.  Mix well and roughly mash the beans with a potato masher or fork.  Slowly add in the reserved bean liquid until desired consistency is reached.  I used about 3/4 cup.  Mix well and cook until beans are heated through.
  3. Warm up corn tortillas on the stove and fill each with a big spoonful of black bean mixture and top with desired toppings.
