Carrot-and-Black Bean Crispy Tacos

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 poblano pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 (15.5-oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice, plus wedges for serving
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. medium carrots, cut into 3″ to 4″ sticks
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 8 whole-grain taco shells, warmed
  • Sliced avocado, crumbled queso fresco, and chopped fresh cilantro and radishes, for serving


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4to 6 minutes. Add chili powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add black beans and 1/3 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. Mash beans with the back of the spoon until thick. Stir in lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, toss carrots with cumin and 1 1/2 tablespoons oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, turning once, until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Divide beans and carrots between taco shells. Top with avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, and radishes. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
