Why you’ll love this vegan pinto bean tacos recipe:

  • The fresh ingredients in this recipe add a ton of flavor: avocadoes, tomatoes, corn and pinto beans combine very, very well to create a delicious flavor.
  • These pinto bean tacos are a good source of protein, with almost 7 grams of protein per serving. They’re also a good source of fiber with about 7.5 grams of fiber per serving.

How to make these pinto bean tacos perfect:

  • The wetter the better: You can use dried pinto beans for this recipe – but obviously that’s going to create a dry taco. If you use dried pinto beans, I recommend soaking them in water overnight. But I would highly recommend canned pinto beans with bean broth for this recipe.
  • Eat ‘em while they’re hot: This recipe is meant to be eaten when it’s hot off the stovetop. It’s not ideal for meal prepping, because the tacos will inevitably become soggy, which isn’t ideal.
  • Heat your tortillas: I highly recommend heating your tortillas before you add your ingredients to them! You can easily heat the tortillas by wrapping them in a wet paper towel and microwaving them for 10-30 seconds. It might seem simple, but it makes a big difference!
  • Make these tacos your own: Tacos are meant to be flexible; you can add or remove ingredients with ease. Add what you love and remove what you don’t! Obviously, pinto beans and tortillas are the only ingredients that are absolutely necessary for these tacos.
