These Vegan Taco Bowls are loaded with a flavorful black bean mixture and topped with my favorite taco toppings!


  • Olive oil
  • 4 medium sized corn tortillas
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: cabbage, tomato, avocado, jalapeno cilantro, lettuce, onion, radish, limes


  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add about 1 teaspoon olive oil, zucchini, red pepper and a pinch of salt.  Cook vegetables until softened and starting to brown, 10-12 minutes.  Add the black beans and spices and cook until beans are heated through.
  2. Dice tortillas into bite size pieces and heat a large pan over medium heat.  Add 2-3 teaspoons olive oil and the diced tortillas.  Cook until tortillas are starting to get crispy, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Assemble your Vegan Taco Bowls: In each bowl add 1/4 the black bean mixture and 1/4 of the crispy tortillas.  Then top off with your favorite taco toppings!  Go as crazy as you want 🙂
