Vegetarian Bean Tacos are full of proteins and other nutrients. I like to eat this recipe as a lettuce wrap. The pace picante sauce gives these bean tacos the perfect amount of zing. I like to make these bean tacos for lunch but they would also be a wonderful dinner with a side salad. You can also use this bean mixture to make a fantastic nacho.
