Black Bean and Orange Breakfast Tacos

BY : PUBLISHED : June 18th, 2014 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

These tasty black bean and orange breakfast tacos are protein packed, filled with veggies, and super fresh tasting from a hint of freshly squeezed orange juice. If you make the bean filling ahead of time and pre-dice your tomatoes, you will cut preparation time down to under five minutes! The filling is a combination of onions, mushrooms, sweet corn, black beans, and fresh orange juice. Set in a toasty corn tortilla and topped with fresh arugula and chopped tomatoes these are heavenly. Play with the filling and topping ingredients once you have the structure down. Avocado would be great, as would chopped red pepper. These would make for a lovely brunch as well!
