Add some pizazz to traditional soft tacos by including corn kernels and black beans in the filling. The mixure also works well in crunchy corn taco shells. GOOD TO KNOW: Add whole-grain rice to the black beans for a complete source of protein. You can also serve it with fresh cilantro, sliced green onions, salsa, and fat-free sour cream for an extra kick.

These were good, small calories, and flavorful. I did use canned corn, and left out the salt. The black beans were just okay, to us, but still had . I would probably use them again, but use about third of the black beans.
