Quinoa, Black Bean and Corn Tacos

quinoa, black bean, corn tacos2

Everyone, I am becoming the healthiest eater ever! Ha yeah right =)! I ate these incredible Quinoa, Black Bean and Corn Tacos for dinner then I ate a big brownie with cream cheese frosting right after. I will never be able to omit the sweets from my life. It’s also highly unlikely that I will ever be able to do with out the comfort food classics like pizza and lasagna. With that said though, I do try and have a balanced diet and eat healthy for the most part.

My Mom went to visit my brother in Arizona and she had mentioned to me how my sister-in-laws mother made the most incredible vegetarian tacos while she was there. Once she said vegetarian she kind of lost me, but seriously she couldn’t stop talking about them and how amazing they were and she got my attention again when she said they had quinoa in them and she thought they tasted just as good as any other taco filling. I decided they were at least worth a try, so I made these for dinner for my family and you wouldn’t believe how good they are! I was shocked myself. I love meat filled tacos but I really thought these were just as good as a ground beef taco, and the even more surprising part is that so did my kids and my husband! My highly carnivorous husband who would basically cringe at the thought of being vegetarian loved these tacos. It’s genius how the flavors of the nutty quinoa along with the black beans and corn can blend to create something equally as good as meat.

I made a few changes to the recipe. I increased the amount of quinoa and corn from the original recipe, I used diced tomatoes with green chilis (instead of just plain diced tomatoes), I decreased the amount of liquid and added chili powder, paprika and coriander because I love spices and more flavor. These will frequently be replacing those ground beef tacos we have for weeknight dinners. I’m sure they are so much healthier and also less fatty than those. I love how much the recipe makes too, it made plenty enough for me to have some for lunch the next day as a light lunch on lettuce with avocados and cottage cheese. It’s an amazing taco filling. Try it! And enjoy! Thanks Natalie for the recipe!

  • Averie @ Averie Cooks: What’s funny is that I think of you as vegetarian in my mind. I read so many blogs but I have a mental list of who’s vegan, who’s veg, who’s in love with cake mix, who uses certain ingredients, etc etc…and I have you in the veggie pile :) So these are perfect! And they look delish! Gorgeous photos. Very hard to make beans look amazing. And you did! April 1, 2013 at 7:50pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: The taco shells? I just used corn tortillas that I bought at the store I do love both homemade corn, white flour and wheat flour tortillas but they make such a mess and take a bit of time so I don’t make them too often. I wish I had some everyday though I love fresh homemade tortillas. Also I like to spray them with a bit of olive oil then cook them in a skillet. I hope you have a chance to try them soon!

  • Erica Boatman: These tacos came out so DELICIOUS. I followed this recipe to the T, only i substitued fresh tomatoes for canned tomatoes and a diced deveined jalapeno (i didnt add the seeds either because of my kids). They still came out great. Also, when i was reading through the recipe at first, i was a little afraid of the mixture becoming too spicy, but do not be afraid they come out just fine with a little hint of spice. SO healthy and deilicious!! A definate staple in my family. Thanks for the recipe! May 8, 2013 at 5:59pm Reply

  • Ryan: Jaclyn,
    Is it possible to leave the mixture in a warm oven for up to an hour after it’s prepared? This will be my first time cooking with Quinoa, so I’m unsure how it does with extended heating. I’m making this to go with my taco bar for a dinner party and would like to have everything done before everyone arrives.
    Thanks! September 27, 2013 at 3:24pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: That should be fine to just keep it warm in the oven, or you can just leave it on the burner over warm heat. Just be sure to keep it covered so too much moisture doesn’t evaporate. I hope you love it Ryan and have a fun dinner party! September 27, 2013 at 8:23pm Reply

I cook a whole package of quinoa and freeze it in small batches so I can make this quickly whenever I want. I also add peppers – sweet, red, yellow, green, serrano, etc. whatever I have on hand.

    • Jaclyn: These are actually corn but they do look like flour :). I use just a little bit of oil (olive, canola or veg works) in a fry pan (like 1 – 1 1/2 tsp per side), swirl it in the oil and let it fry up until golden brown then flip and do the same on the other side. That way I’m not frying it in a ton of oil and I like how it will give it the nice toasty flavor. Love your blog :). February 2, 2014 at 11:22am Reply

  • Kaitlin: I’ve made this recipe several times now and we love it!! My husband even said “It never ceases to amaze me that these are just quinoa.” We are a meat eating family so for him so be satisfied with something meatless is pretty incredible. The only thing we change is the amount of black beans, we felt 2 cans was way too much so we just use one, other than that it’s flawless! I’ll usually eat it on a salad with crushed up tortilla chips, avocados and sour cream for left overs. Love it! February 21, 2014 at 10:44am Reply

    I told myself I was going to make something different each night (or when the leftovers are gone) and I’ve made this three times already. It’s so filling!

    Though twice already I’ve forgotten to rinse the quinoa :( 3 cups of quinoa and 6 cups of veggie broth (what I cook it in) went to waste, but I’m still new to it. Definitely will be trying the chili soon! April 3, 2014 at 9:07pm Reply
