Any day is a good day for tacos, especially when they’re high in protein and fiber, like this spicy black bean version.
Vegetarian or not, black beans are one of the healthiest foods to consume—the calcium, copper and zinc in black beans all contribute to maintaining healthy bones while the fiber content helps with overall digestion. Black beans also contain selenium, a mineral that a study conducted by the International Journal of Cancer found supports a healthy immune system and decreases the risk of colon cancer.
So whip these bad boys up, throw on some Beach Boys and have yourself a fiesta, any day of the week!
