Black bean tacos with walnuts, tomato salsa and roasted corn

Tacos are an emblematic dish of the Mexican cuisine that dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Their origin can be traced to ancient Mesoamerican civilizations such as the Aztecs and Mayans, who consumed food wrapped in corn tortillas. With the arrival of the Spanish, new ingredients like beef and pork were introduced and combined with local culinary traditions. Over the centuries, tacos have evolved and diversified into a wide variety of flavors and fillings, becoming an essential part of Mexican gastronomic culture and one of the most popular dishes worldwide.

The black beans:

Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and add 2/3 of the garlic. Sauté for 15-20 seconds.
Add diced tomatoes (from the can), beans, and the spice mix.
Let it simmer over medium heat until the liquid reduces a bit. It should be somewhat dry-creamy.
Incorporate walnuts. 

The tomato salsa:

In a bowl, mix tomato cubes with the remaining garlic.
Squeeze lime over the mix and add a dash of olive oil.
Season with salt and pepper.
Mix well and set aside

The toasted corn:

(You can use the same fryingpan if you set aside the beans in another container and dry the pan with a paper towel.)
Heat a frying pan (without oil) over medium heat.
Toast the corn until it’s golden brown, for about 4-5 min.
Add ground cayenne pepper to taste. (Spicy!)
Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Your meal:

In the same frying pan you used for the corn, heat the tortillas for a few seconds on each side.
On the tortilla, place the bean mixture, tomato salsa,
and toasted corn. Finish with grated cheddar cheese.
