Grilled Vegetable and Black Bean Tacos

Grilled Vegetable and Black Bean Tacos

This is the perfect time of year to make these easy grilled tacos–just grab what looks good from your garden or Farmers’ Market, grill it up, toss it together, and fill your tortillas.  I promise no one will miss the meat.

For this batch I grilled zucchini, sweet corn, and Anaheim chiles, then sliced them up and tossed with the other ingredients for the filling.  To grill vegetables I just toss the whole vegetables or slices (for things like zucchini) with a little olive oil and salt, then grill until they are tender and have some nice grill marks going on.  For corn I shuck it and remove the silk, rub with a little oil, and grill directly.  I like a little char on my corn.  For green chiles, grill them whole until the skin has blackened, then let them steam cool in a paper bag.  Peel off the skins and remove the seeds, and they are ready to go.

Here are the amounts I used for this batch, and you can vary any of the vegetables and amounts according to what you like.  I typically add grilled onions but didn’t have them on hand.
