Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Spread about 2 tablespoons of oil evenly across it.
  • 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.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush a thin layer of oil on each taquito.
  • Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, until the tortillas start to brown.

Notes

USING CORN TORTILLAS

If you prefer making this recipe gluten-free, then you can substitute corn tortillas for the flour tortillas. Because it's more difficult to roll these tortillas without breaking them, here is how you can soften them:
Wrap a stack of corn tortillas in a damp paper towel and then wrap them in plastic wrap. Microwave them for about a minute, until they are warm and flexible. Then begin filling and carefully rolling the corn tortilla taquitos.

AVOCADO CREMA RECIPE

To make your own Avocado Crema, place 1 large avocado (without the pit and peel) with ⅓ cup of yogurt (or plant yogurt), 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and salt and pepper (to taste) in a smoothie cup or a blender. Process until smooth and use as a dip for your taquitos.
