Sweet and spicy cherry salsa crowns these tacos, creating a fresh summer seasonal spin to black bean tacos. The salsa tastes great (maybe even better) the next day, so this is a great recipe to prep ahead.

Time: 30 Minutes

Sweet + Spicy Cherry Salsa Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pitted dark sweet cherries
  • 1/2 yellow or orange bell pepper
  • ½ jalapeno pepper
  • ½ small red onion
  • large handful cilantro
  • large handful parsley
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • salt + pepper, to taste

Finely dice the cherries, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, and onion. Finely chop the cilantro and parsley. Then, toss all of the ingredients with the lime juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.

TIP: if you’re short on time, pulse all of the ingredients together in a food processor.

Taco Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cans, no salt, added black beans, rinsed
  • ¼ cup water
  • 8 – 10 hard or soft shell corn tortillas
  • Greek yogurt

In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil on low and cook the onions for 5 minutes. Then add in the garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin, stir and cook for another 3 minutes.

Next, turn the heat to medium and add the beans and water; stir and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Serve in a corn tortilla with a dollop of Greek yogurt and the Sweet + Spicy Cherry Salsa; enjoy!
