Black Beans & Roasted Veggies Tacos

I remember the 1st time I had Mexican food… specially the hard tacos!!! I didn’t like at all… Let me confess and make you laugh that I couldn’t understand how to handle a hard-shell taco in my hand and more than that, how to eat it without creating a mess :P Well, now I love Mexican delicacies as much as I love any other cuisine but hard taco shells are still in my NO-NO zone.

I often make tacos.. soft shells, homemade from scratch! And recently when I had black beans, avocado, too many veggies n everything else… I couldn’t stop myself from making some shells for dinner! All what I loved here is… a healthy touch :) And my love for Tacos could be more because I find it very similar to our daily meal in some ways! Like.. rice, beans, lemon, herbs, salad dressing, crunchy veggies and specially the spicy element. I can’t handle much spicy food but I definitely try making it delicious for sure :)

Although I don’t make these corn tortillas with the traditional ingredients but it surely fits the bill ;) Easy, healthy and tasty… all in one plate!
