A hearty vegan main dish for carnivores and herbivores alike (and everyone between). Great topped with guacamole or avocados, hot sauce, sour cream, cheese, or vegan dairy alternatives.

I make this all the time. It's easy and delish. I put a bit less water and smash up the black beans some to more closely mimic taco filling, but otherwise- perfection! Read More

Way too much liquid even though I decreased the water to 1 cup as one reviewer suggested. Flavor was good. Texture was good. Just too much liquid. I will make this again with some revisions either less water or one less can on tomato sauce. Read More

Love this recipe! I will never eat ground beef tacos again! I am not a vegetarian or vegan but my son is and that's how I came across this recipe. It's super easy tasty and I love that it's so healthy for me. Read More

Very yummy for a quick vegan meal (for someone who lives with all non-vegans). I cut the recipe in half and still had plenty of leftovers, and it's very filling. Cut down on the water as suggested. Served on a large flour tortilla with vegan sour cream, nutritional yeast, and lettuce. Will be sharing recipe and making again! Read More
