Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil, over medium heat.
  2. Add in the onion and garlic; sauté, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until the onion is clear.
  3. Add in the cumin and chili powder; stir for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the beans and salsa; mash with the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher until the mixture is your preferred state of chunky or smooth.
  5. Season with salt and hot sauce to taste.
  6. Transfer bean mixture to a casserole dish.
  7. Top with 1/3 cup shredded cheese.
  8. Cook at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through and starts to brown.
  9. Remove from oven.
  10. I let everyone assemble their own tacos and set out the bean mixture, taco shells, and all the toppings out on the table.
  11. Here is how I make mine: I spoon the bean mixture into the taco shell, then add salsa, lettuce, avocado and cheese; then I squeeze a little lime over the top.
  12. Feel free to add as many or as few toppings as your shell will hold.
