I Quit Sugar - Black Bean Tacos

Mandy Sacher "When I make these I separate the ingredients and let my children make up their own tortillas. They shove as much as they can into their wraps. This is a really unique, tasty combination of ingredients, it's really impressive how it all comes together."

Preparation: 30 mins
Cooking: 20 mins
