Looking for a way to jazz up black bean tacos? Black bean tacos are a great meatless taco option, but they've been done a million times. Let's try something a bit more...colorful. Once a month I get a local, organic fruit and veggie box delivered to my door. I think it's so fun to play around with what's in season while supporting the local economy. This particular box had rainbow carrots. With the traditional orange, brilliant yellow, and deep purple hues, you won't even notice the lack of meat in this back bean tacos dish. Black beans are a great way to add texture and protein without adding meat. Switch things up with these meatless rainbow carrot and black bean tacos.
