Veggie Black Bean Tacos

veggie bean tacos
Whenever I don't have much time, I go for some semi homemade meals.. Sandwiches or Tacos with any vegetables I have.  Today's meal is with Vegetable and Black Bean Tacos with store bought Tortillas.  Mexican Tacos are quite similar to Indian Vegetable Frankie or Kathi Roll.
Grilled veggies, cheese and lettuce make these wraps delicious and healthy.

Ingredients:
Tortillas - 6
Dry Black Beans - 1 cup
Zucchini Squash - about 2 cups
Tomato - 1 medium
Lettuce - about 1 cup
Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese - 1/2 cup each
Chipotle Seasoning - 2 tsp
Garlic - 2 big cloves
Cumin/Jeera Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander/Dhaniya Powder - 1/2 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt

How to make Veggie Tacos:
  • Cook black beans with 2 cups water until they turn soft.  Add more water if required.  I used a pressure cooker for cooking beans.  Add 1 1/2 tsp Chipotle Seasoning, cumin, coriander and salt.  Continue cooking the beans until all the water is lost.
  • Meanwhile, medium chop zucchini squash and finely chop garlic.  Heat oil in a pan and add zucchini, garlic.  Saute for a minute or two and add 1/2 tsp Chipotle Seasoning, freshly ground black pepper, salt. Saute until zucchini is cooked.  You can use any other veggies of your choice like bell peppers/capsicum.
  • Discard the seeds and the soft part of the tomato.  Finely chop tomato and lettuce.  Grate the cheese.  Use any cheese of your choice.
  • Heat the tortillas as per instructions.  I used a cast iron griddle/tawa and heated each side for about 10 seconds.  While heating, fold them on the griddle.
