Easy Black Bean Tacos

Cinco de Mayo is the perfect excuse to prepare some fun foods to share at home with friends and family! Mexican cuisine imparts lots of fresh flavors with ingredients like cilantro, avocado, mango, fresh corn, jalapenos and fish. Here are some tips to keep your dishes light and tasty! – Use corn tortillas over flour tortillas to save calories and get a boost of whole grain. – Fresh avocados can go from tacos, to dip and salads for a dose of heart healthy fats. – Did you know that mango is one of the world’s most popular fruits! And for good reason, it’s delicious and easily pairs with sweet or savory dishes. – Black beans are one of the healthiest and most economical sources of protein in the store. Enjoy them weekly to increase your intake of fiber, antioxidants and plant-based protein.
