If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal to serve your family on busy days, these 5-minute black bean tacos will change your life!

One of my favorite meals to feed my family in a hurry is a taco bar. 

It’s so easy – just pull this and that out of your pantry and refrigerator, line it up on the countertop, and everybody makes their own tacos. 

This is an especially perfect meal for us on homeschool co-op days when we get home hungry, and ready for lunch. Five minutes from the time we step into the door, dinner is on the table thanks to these black bean tacos.

This taco bar concept has evolved over time for us, from when I was a teenager living at home, and we made tacos every Saturday – my sister would make a big pot of cheese sauce, somebody would brown a big skillet of ground beef, another person would make homemade refried beans, while someone else made tortillas and whoever had a minute would chop olives, tomatoes, onions, and lettuce. (we were a big family – in case that isn’t obvious 😉 )

That was quite a production, something that took up a good portion of our morning, and this 5-minute black bean taco recipe is not that. 

This black bean taco bar is designed to take no more than five minutes to put together.

Whether it’s because you had a busy day and don’t have time to cook, or unexpected dinner guests show up. 

You want something easy, filling, and delicious that you can put together in an instant. 

This is where BUSH’S® Savory Beans come in.

5 minute tacos with BUSH'S Savory Beans

Already seasoned and ready to heat and eat. BUSH’S Savory Beans are made from the best beans, simmered in delicious savory sauces that come in three flavors, and I love the simplicity of their ingredients.

And of course, since BUSH’S Savory Beans are naturally gluten-free, they’re a perfect fit for our family.

These black beans tacos are so easy to make!

I pick them up at Walmart (they’re in the bean/canned food aisle in our Walmart, right at eye level) to have on hand for busy days, and just pour them into a bowl and pop them in the microwave for a minute while I quickly warm some leftover ground beef, and corn tortillas up on a couple skillets.

That’s it. 

Literally all the cooking – if you call it that – involved. 

And they’re so tasty! 

I love the mild chipotle sauce in the Black Beans making it so easy to heat and eat, getting that great taco flavor without having to season anything. 

My husband and daughter have found that they like to use Bush’s Southwestern-style pinto beans on their tacos as well. I love the pinto beans as a side dish – they’re such a delicious pairing no matter what else is on  your plate – but for me, the black bean fiesta is really hard to beat paired with a corn tortilla, cheese, olives, onions, and salsa. So yummy!

Either way, BUSH’S Savory Beans are great for enhancing meals and can improve or inspire weeknight or everyday meals.

  1. Bean and cheese tacos/quesadillas are a staple lunch for us. I keep single-serve guacamole pods in the freezer for an easy topping when I don’t have sour cream. When I’m on the ball, I freeze the quesadillas and just have to reheat them! Maybe less than 5 minutes then. Just cook them briefly on low until the cheese sets up. Freeze flat. Reheat from frozen in a skillet on low until browned or in the microwave with a damp paper towel over the top. Very easy and great to have on hand!
