Crisp Black Bean Tacos with Feta and Lime Slaw


I found this on Smitten Kitchen one day and it caught my eye because she said it only took 10 minutes to make. I think if I wasn’t taking pictures of everything as I made them, it would have been about 10 minutes.

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 cans black beans

2 tsp. cumin

salt and pepper

olive oil

4 or more Tbs. lime juice

bag of cole slaw mix

2-4 green onions

cilantro – a couple handfuls, chopped

feta cheese

hot sauce


Rinse and drain the black beans. Stir in the cumin and partially mash the beans. In a separate bowl, combine about 4 tsp. olive oil with the lime juice. Add the cole slaw mix, green onions and cilantro and toss. Salt and pepper the slaw.

Put a little olive oil in a skillet or on a griddle. Place the tortilla on the hot griddle and add some of the black beans. Fold the shell over the top of the beans and toast on both sides until crisped. Remove from the griddle and add some feta cheese and slaw. Serve with hot sauce.

My husband and I really liked these. My two youngest kids ate plain black bean tacos with no slaw. My oldest daughter thought these tasted okay. My meat-loving son choked down half of one. For a quick meal, it was pretty good and I would make it again, maybe adding more spices to the beans. I also think that leftover shredded pork would be good in them.

  2. I made these tonight and took your advice of adding more seasoning . I used some homemade taco seasoning. They came out great. Super easy. Very tasty (that feta adds that extra deliciousness). Thanks for sharing!
