Vegan Spicy Taco Tuesday & The Best Homemade Guacamole!

This Taco Tuesday I’m actually going to give you the recipe for the vegan soft tacos I made Monday 🙂 They were SO good and it dawned on me! Vegan Taco Tuesday! This Vegan Taco Tuesday we have Keli’s Black Bean and Grounds Soft Tacos with Fresh Guacamole! 

Guacamole

  • 4 Ripe Brown Avocados – halved and pitted in their skins
  • 1 or 2 Key Limes and Zest
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro – chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Black Beans – Prepared or Canned, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup Yellow Corn – Fresh Prepared or Frozen and thawed
  • 3 Roma Tomatoes – Diced with seeds removed
  • 1 Red Onion – Finely Chopped or Minced
  • 2 – 4 Cloves Garlic – Pressed or Minced
  • Salt to taste

With avocado still in skin, cut into small/medium cubes and scrape into a medium bowl with a spoon. Add diced and seeded tomatoes, finely chopped red onion, black beans, corn and half the garlic. Mix, do not mash, but don’t worry if mixture breaks down some. Roll one key lime on counter to release juices, cut in half with a sharp knife being careful not to squeeze the lime. Juice lime into mixture and add zest from 1/2 of lime. Add cilantro. Mix well. Let stand 10-15 minutes. Taste. Add salt and adjust lime and garlic to taste. Enjoy!

Keli’s Spicy Black Bean and Grounds Soft Tacos

  • 1 Cup Dry Brown Rice
  • 2 Cups Vegetable or Fake Beef or Fake Chicken Boullion
  • 1 Can Organic Black Beans – rinsed and drained
  • 1 Jar of Your Favorite HOT Salsa
  • 1 Bag Gardein Vegan Grounds
  • 1 Pack Taco Seasoning
  • 1 & 1/4 Cups Water
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Soft Taco Shells
  • 1 Jalapeno – diced
  • Toppings: baby spinach or other greens, tomato, Tofutti Sour Supreme or sour cream, Daiya Vegan Shreds or other shredded cheese, black olives, salsa, hot sauce, homemade guacamole, jalapenos

Prepare brown rice using whatever type of vegetarian stock you are using. Add grounds, pack of taco seasoning and 1 & 1/4 cup water to medium skillet over medium-high heat. Place black beans, 1/2 jar of salsa, few dashes or more onion and garlic powder, and just enough water to thin to cook in small sauce pot on stove on low-medium heat. Bring grounds to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer at least 10 minutes, or you will have a gritty taste from the taco seasoning. Add extra water if necessary. When everything is ready and hot, place soft taco shell over beans while still hot to steam. Prepare tacos to your liking. For more heat, add more salsa, hot sauce or sriracha and jalapenos. Enjoy!

Thanks everyone! I hope you enjoy and please leave comments, share with your friends, give me some feedback!

Be Kind Everyone,

Welcome to the website of The Alabama Vegan. Going vegan while living here at a very young age was a struggle. No one knew what a vegan was or what I should eat : ) The world has changed immensely since then, but sometimes people still need a little help finding their way to a healthy and balanced vegan diet. My goal is to use my website to educate everyone on healthy eating in a fast paced world, at an affordable cost.

  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am not vegan myself but my gf is so this really bailed me out.. Trying to get her to watch sports with me. LOL Maybe this will do the trick!

    1. Hey Kyle,
      Thank you for visiting my website 🙂 You really should try the tacos, they are yummy! Your girlfriend is probably on to something with this vegan thing! I love sports too though, so good luck!

  2. I never made a taco before. Heck, I even just encountered the word taco last year.

    Living in Indonesia, you rarely find a restaurant that carries taco in its menu.

    But yeah, I would love to try this vegan spicy taco recipe. I just need to google some terms. LOL.

    1. Hey,
      Thank you for visiting my site! Wow, it’s funny how different cultures can be around the world. You should definitely try these tacos if you have never made them at home. I try to keep my recipes simple, easy and not too pricey. No one wants to spend tons of money to try food they may or may not like. Give them a shot, you’ll love them!

  3. Thank you for this recipe. I have saved this recipe for another day. I actually do catering but I never made tacos because pico de gallo takes forever to make. Also food always wins.

    1. Hey,
      Thanks for stopping by and checking out my site! You should definitely try these tacos, super yummy and not hard to make. I’ve spent many years in restaurants, pico has nothing on hollandaise or creme brulee for 200 people. You could tough it out, just lots of knife skills involved 🙂 Come back by, I’m always putting up new recipes! Thanks.

  4. I can’t wait to try this! Do you think it would make enough for two adults and two kids (minus the hot stuff for the kids!)? I’d never think to put spinach on top, what an awesome suggestion for a topping. It’s always good to find great vegan recipes that actually use things I already have in my cupboard, so thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey Angela!
      I’m glad you like the recipe for the spicy tacos. I think it would feed two adults and two kids with no problem. Yes, I try to keep the recipes from getting so specialized that no one will try them. It doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to be vegan, I just grab what I’ve got and figure it out! Keep coming back and you’ll keep finding more great recipes! Thank you,
      Keli

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Rose,
      I’m glad you like the recipe! Tacos are wonderful and I love them too! Please try them out and let me know what you think.

  6. OMG, this looks so good! I love avocado and I love guacamole even more! These recipes are making me hungry and I think that I am going to try out the guacamole recipe.
    Should I try and cut the avocado big and leave it big or should I mash it all the way?
    Thanks,
    Paulina

    1. Hi Paulina!
      Thank you! I’m glad you like my recipes! You can leave the avocado in cubes or mash it, I prefer to leave it a little chunky because I love avocados and when there is that nice chunk of fresh avocado right in the middle of the guacamole it is like a flavor explosion on your taste buds! Enjoy your guacamole and please let me know how it turns out 🙂

    1. Thanks Christian! I hope you and your wife enjoy the tacos and guacamole 🙂 Let me know how they turn out and stop back by sometime for more recipes. Especially Taco Tuesday!

    First, I find that it is very relaxing to read everything food related and secondly, I love exploring new recipes, especially when they contain guacamole.
