When I was pregnant with my daughter, I constantly craved taco bowls, chips, and salsa.

Tacos continue to be one of my top go-to quick dinners. Since the kids love snacking on chips and salsa almost as much as I do, these Black Bean Avocado Taco Cups make the perfect appetizer. They work well for dinner too, and the kids love finger foods!

12 small Flour Tortillas
2 Cups of canned black beans

1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

2 Cups avocado squares
2 Cups cooked corn
Cilantro

Easy taco cups recipe with black beans, rice, corn, and avocados.

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the tortillas in your muffin tin. You may need to pinch and fold the sides in order for them to sit in the pan like a cupcake liner.

Bake the tortilla cups for about 10-12 minutes or until the tortillas get crispy.

While the tortillas are baking, add the black beans, adobo, garlic powder, BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper to a pan.

Preparing black beans for taco cup recipe

Stir over medium heat for 5 minutes, then set aside.

Once the tortillas are crispy, carefully take them out of the oven.

Fill each cup with ⅛ cup corn, ¼ cup rice, ⅛ cup beans, ⅛ cup avocado squares, and top with cilantro. (Or go ahead and eyeball it!)

Serve and enjoy!

Additional serving tips:

Add hot sauce to the black beans for a spicy kick. You may also substitute corn tortillas for a gluten-free option. (And always double check your sauces and canned goods are gluten-free too.)
