Cilantro - Lime Rice & Black Bean Tacos

Cilantro - Lime Rice & Black Bean Tacos is one of our all time favorite dishes. As mentioned in my last post, Chipotle's Veggie Burrito is our favorite and hence wanted to recreate it at home. I tried making everything from scratch and trust me they taste much better then Chipotle! You know what goes into each one of them and is much healthier.

Do try making them at home to know the difference. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we do :-)

  • Flour Tortillas, Small sized - 5-6 (for recipe, click here)
  • Guacamole (For recipe, click here)
  • Cooked Black beans - 1/3 cup
  • Cilantro - Lime Rice (for recipe, click here)
For Veggie Stir Fry :
  • Green Bell Pepper, small sized - 1
  • Red Onion, small sized - 1
  • Oil - 1-2 tsp
  • Salt & Pepper - To taste
Other recommend Toppings: Sour cream, Shredded lettuce, Pico de Gallo, Cheese, Cooked corn kernels etc.


Making these tacos is a little time consuming as there are bunch of things to prepare. If you want to take a short cut while making these then buy flour tortillas and canned black beans from the store. I make all of them from scratch. Make sure to check out the recipe for each of them provided under 'Ingredients'.
#Prepare the guacamole and stick in the refrigerator until use (check out my recipe)
#Then prepare the cilantro- lime rice. Check out my previous post for the recipe.
#For Black beans - You can use canned beans or home cooked beans. I usually cook a large batch at once and then freeze it for later use.
#Make flour tortillas or heat the store bought ones and set it aside.

For making Veggie stir fry: Slice the onion and bell pepper lengthwise. Then heat a wide pan along with oil. Once hot, add sliced veggies and mix well. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Continue cooking until done (I don't brown them). Then transfer to a bowl.

Assembling the tacos:

Line up all the ingredients that go in a taco.

Now take a tortilla on a plate.

Then place some cilantro- lime rice and black beans.

Then top it off with stir fried veggies and guacamole ( and any other toppings of your choice).

Continue with the rest of the tortillas. 
Cilantro - Lime Rice & Black Bean Tortillas are ready!!

Serve it immediately once assembled. Above measurement serves two.
