Step 1. Grab a can of delicious black beans.

Step 3. Also make a large salad containing Bibb Lettuce that is finely chopped, cherry tomatoes cup in half or you can use chopped tomatoes, and a bit of chopped onions.

How to Assemble the Tacos & Serving Suggestions

To assemble the Tavern Tacos drain the beans and fill a warm corn shell with the black beans. Top with a large mound of the salad. Add shredded cheese if desired and a dollop of sour cream - either light or full-blown. Regular sour cream contains only 20 calories more than light.

Serve with your favorite salsa. You can also use flour tortillas if you prefer them over corn.
