Black Bean Tacos

Taco nights are good nights. While there are a lot of ways to make this meal using pre-made spice mixes and sauces, there is nothing like making it from scratch. If we had thought about it, we would have made the shells too. There is a point where we get lazy though. Here is our vegetarian black bean taco recipe.
