Veggie Bean Tacos
In the summer when fresh corn and just-picked tomatoes are in season, authentic Mexican dishes like this leave you always wanting that next bite. My personal preference is to serve them with a slice of lime to squeeze over the avocado. —Tonya Burkhard, Davis, Illinois

This is a very easy and tasty recipe. I liked it better than I thought it would..the blend of ingredients was very good. Spiced it up with Red pepper flakes and other spices.
