Recipe

In my experience, vegetarian tacos are all too often one type of sad canned bean and some traditional taco accompaniments.  There are no added spices, no fresh ingredients,  no fun. 

Today we set out to change that and make a bean taco that's delicious and packed with flavor.  Instead of just using one bean, we are going to use a combination of black beans and chickpeas.  To that we are going to add some spicy chipotles, onions, a green bell pepper, and corn.  I recommend going with fresh corn if you can find it since it has more crunch and texture.  Depending on how spicy you like things, feel free to use extra chipotles or add in a couple fresh jalapenos.  Additionally, you could add 1-2 tbsp.of tomato paste if you want to add in a tomato flavor to the tacos.  Since I normally have that covered in the salsa, I decided not to add it here, but it would be a great addition.
