– 2 cans (14 oz. each) black beans, drained and rinsed – 1 medium onion, diced – 3 garlic cloves, minced – 1 tsp. paprika – ½ tsp. cumin powder – ¼ tsp. salt or to taste – ¼ tsp. pepper or to taste – 1 cup vegetable broth – 1 ½ tbsp. lime juice – ¼ cup cilantro, chopped – 1 tbsp. plant butter (or regular butter) – 12 6-inch flour tortillas

Step 1

In a medium saucepan, simmer the beans, onion, garlic, veggie stock, and spices for 15 minutes, until the onion softens nicely and the liquid has almost evaporated.

Add the plant butter, lime juice, and cilantro, and mash everything together with a potato masher.

Lay out the tortillas on a flat surface and divide the bean mixture among the 12 tortillas (about 3 tablespoons for each). Roll up each tortilla tightly and place it seam side down.

Step 4

Line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Spread about 2 tablespoons of oil evenly across it.

Step 5

Place the taquitos seam side down on the baking tray, making sure that you are leaving at least ½ inch of space between each one.

Step 6

Using a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of oil on each taquito.

Step 7

Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, until the tortillas start to brown.

These Baked Black Bean Taquitos are healthy and so tasty. Beans, veggies, lime juice, and spices, wrapped in a tortilla and baked to a golden brown, this dish is fantastic.
