Black Bean Tacos with Avocado, Roasted Corn and Radish Salsa

Sometimes simple meals are the best meals. But just because they're simple, doesn't mean they should lack flavor or nutrition. Lately I've been thinking of different ways to use radishes because they aren't my favorite vegetable, but they're so pretty and they provide a great crunch. This salsa is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, creamy and crunchy (thanks to those pink beauties!). Delish.

The black bean burger filling is a great protein source and you can't beat the fact that it's ready in basically no time at all. Combined with the salsa and salty cotija cheese, this taco is addictive.



1. Combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and set aside.



2. Cook burgers according to package instructions and roughly chop. Transfer to a bowl.



3. To serve, place diced burger and salsa onto each warm tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese and squeeze fresh lime juice over the top.

  1. The veggies look so fresh and crunchy. This seems like a proper,wholesome meal to me. I think it is the perfect recipe for Ti-Tea, light on the budget and full of nutrients.
