Baked Black Bean Tacos with Red Chile Sauce, they’re perfect for a quick, easy, pulled together weeknight dinner or a casual impromptu gathering with family and friends.
Tacos are wonderful!
They’re easy to make and you can fill them with just about any ingredient you happen to have on hand.
I’m usually pretty good at planning what’s for dinner, but then there are days when I’m so busy I haven’t planned anything. That’s when I shop my fridge and pantry.
This recipe is one pulled together from items I had in my fridge and pantry.
Onions, frozen corn, tomatoes, jalapeños, black beans and some Red Chile sauce I had prepared and frozen in the freezer. You can get that recipe here.
Everything is sautéed in a skillet, stuffed in tortillas, topped with sauce and cheese, then baked in the oven long enough to melt the cheese. Remove from oven and dinner is ready. Add a salad and you’re good to go.

Tortillas filled with black beans, corn, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, covered with cheese, and Red Chile Sauce then bake. Perfect for a quick, easy, pulled together weeknight dinner.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 cup corn
- 2 tablespoons taco spice or more to taste
- 3 roma tomatoes, diced
- 1 or 2 jalapeños, diced
- 1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
- ¼ cup water
- 1 ¼ cup chihuahua cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped (optional)
- 8 to 10 corn or flour tortillas
- 1 cup or more Red Chile sauce
- Vegan sour cream
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, onions, corn and taco seasoning to skillet. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes until onions start to soften.
Add tomatoes, jalapeños, black beans and ¼ cup water to the skillet and stir to combine. Stir occasionally another 4 to 6 minutes, the mixture should start to thicken. Taste and add more taco seasoning to taste.
While taco filling is sauteing in the skillet, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup of the cheese and chopped cilantro.
Spoon a heaping ¼ to ½ cup of the mixture into folded tortillas, depending on the size tortilla you are using, place filled tortilla in baking dish. When tortillas are filled, top with Red Chile sauce also known as enchilada sauce and remaining cheese.
Bake in preheated oven until cheese has melted, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Serve tacos with your desired toppings, I like to serve mine with vegan sour cream.
