Black Beans are Magical! High Protein, High Fiber, and Gluten Free!

Black Beans are pretty amazing in terms of health benefits.  They have a whopping 15g of protein and 15g of Fiber in 1 cup! It’s recommended that Women get 25g of Fiber daily, but most women are not getting this much in their diet.   When I checked my daily fiber intake, I was only at about 15g and was really surprised!!  Track your Fiber for a day or two and see how you stack up. 

Black beans are a great source of Fiber, especially if you are eating a gluten free diet and may not be getting fiber from grains.  Try my Easy Brazilian Black Beans or Chickpea & Black Bean Cakes with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce or my Creamy Cajun Beans & Cauliflower over Quinoa for a few other great way to make these!

The best part about these is that you can make tons right on sheet pans and let people take as many as they want. Then you can save whatever is left to warm up later. Yum and yum again!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

The beans are the first component that you can completely prepare ahead and then reheat.  These are simply blended in a mini food processor with a garlic clove, chili powder, cumin, and water.  I love mine with some texture, so I pulse until its a nice mix and there are no huge chunks of garlic.  After blending, you will cook the beans on the stove for about 10-15 minutes until all of the flavors are melded together.

While the beans cook, you can make the tomato sauce, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. 
On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs. Store your ‘Kit’ in the fridge!  

COOK YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS 

When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches. Spray or brush the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.  Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center. When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove. Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat.  For little kids you can of course swap these with scrambled eggs. 

Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.  Next drizzle the tomato sauce and add a sprinkle of cheese, then scallions, and cilantro.

  2. You want the beans mostly blended, but with some texture, as these will get cooked down and then spread on the tortillas.

  3. After blending, add the beans to preheated saucepot with 1 tsp olive oil.  Stir the beans around as they cook so as not to burn. Turn the heat down to med-low and cook COVERED for 10 minutes.

  4. Tomato Sauce: While the beans cook, you can mix together in a bowl, the tomato sauce, chili powder, and cumin.  Taste for seasoning and add salt or adjust other seasonings as you like.

  5. Finally, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. Place these in separate storage bags.
  6. Store your 'Kit' in the fridge! On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs.

Final Cook and Assembly

  1. When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

  2. Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches.  Spray the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top. Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center.  When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

  3. While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove.  Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

  4. Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat. You want the bottom to set, but not the yoke, as you want that runny. Finish for all 8 eggs.
  5. Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR PORK TACOS COOKING KIT

You are busy, so these are the steps you can do a day or two in advance to prepare food ahead!  (See the recipe below for more details)

So much can be done ahead for this recipe, which is so fantastic for a busy Mom! You can make the pickled onions 3-4 days in advance. The pork can be made months in advance and frozen or 3-4 days in advance and stored in the fridge. The Cilantro Lime Crema can be made 1-2 days in advance.

Let’s Get Pickled

Ok, so let’s start with the Pickled Onions! For these, you simply thinly slice the onion and then separate the slices into a bowl that is large enough to cover the onion with the pickling liquid.

In a saucepan, bring white vinegar, sugar (or honey), and cumin powder to a boil. Then pour the hot mixture over the onions. Let sit until up to room temperature, then cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

I love to make a ton of these pickled onions and store them in jars. I use these pickled onions in salads, on sandwiches, in rice bowls, with grilled meats, and so much more.

Crema so good you will eat it with a spoon!

Next, we have the creamy, tangy and fresh Cilantro Lime Crema, which is nothing short of delish and it’s really everything I can do from eating it straight with a spoon.  The key is the Lime zest, not just using the juice.  The zest gives a more intense lime flavor without the intense sour.

You can make the Crema a couple days in advance. Add sour cream to small bowl. Then add lime zest, lime juice, cilantro and salt. Mix to combine until smooth…YUM!

Cook the Pork and Put the Tacos Together!

Now for the pork! This recipe uses the slow cooker for a deep flavor and the most tender, fall-apart meat. Simply add everything to the pot, set for 8 hours and when it’s done, just pull the meat apart with a fork.

Last, once the pork is done, wrap 12 tortillas in aluminum foil & place in the oven for 10 minutes. Turn off oven & let stay in oven until ready to eat.

To serve, you can obviously add any toppings that your family loves, such as tomatoes, avocado, or different cheeses. Simply put bowls of everything out for the family to put together themselves or put the tacos together and plate them all for a stunning presentation!

Make Pork filling in Slow Cooker (make months ahead and freeze or up to 4 days before)

  1. Mince the garlic

  2. To the slow cooker pot, add the pork, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.  Fill with chicken broth starting with 1 cup and pouring enough to cover the pork.  Set slow cooker to 8 hours.

Tortillas

  1. Once pork is done, wrap 12 tortillas in aluminum foil & place in a 300 F degree oven for 10 minutes. Turn off oven & let stay in oven until ready to eat

Make Cilantro Lime Crema (make up to 3 days before)

  1. Add sour cream to small bowl
  2. Zest both limes and add the zest to the sour cream.  Then quarter the limes and add the juice from 3 quarters into sour cream & mix to combine until smooth. Taste and if needed add juice from 1/4 more of the lime at a time tasting as you add to make sure it doesn't get to acidic.

  3. Add 1 tsp chopped Cilantro and salt to taste to crema

Put it all together!

  1. Chop some fresh cilantro for garnish.  TIP: you can also snip it off the stem with kitchen scissors!

  2. For the pork, you will want to make sure to drain out the liquid so the tacos are not soggy.  I like to store the shredded pork in the liquid as well as heat it up in the liquid, so I do not discard it, but rather drain it when serving.  

  3. Layer the tortillas with pork, then pickled onions, then cheese, then Cilantro lime crema, then fresh chopped Cilantro.  Enjoy!
