Black Bean Chili with Cheddar Crisps

1. Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Mayonnaise

This recipe is a case in point that the best veggie burger patties are made from black beans. We add seasame seeds and soy sauce to give our patties a full flavor. It would be misleading not to mention that the Sriracha mayonnaise is a large part of what makes this recipe a homerun. Go ahead and give it a try!

2. Black Bean & Corn Nachos with Charred Jalapeño Crema

A list of black bean recipes must include nachos! The best part about making nachos at home is the possibility of unlimited toppings. We make our tortillas in the oven, so this is a slightly healthier nacho recipe. Be sure to keep reading for more of our favorites!

3. Chorizo and Black Bean Tortas with Queso and Lime Crema

The name torta can mean something different depending on where you are in the world; in Spain it's an omelet and in Italy, a cake. Our torta recipe refers to the Mexican sandwich version. There are dozens of ways you can do up this sandwich, but we love it most with black beans at the center.

4. Black Bean Chili with Cheddar Crisps

What's better than a bowl of hearty chili an icy day? Maybe a vacation to a warmer place... We can't change the weather, but we can delight your taste buds with this black bean chili recipe! The trick to this one is adding tortillas to the pot to get a really nice and thick consistency.

5. Black Bean Quinoa Bowl with Spicy Snap Peas & Radish Salad

Though an unlikely pair, black beans and quiona make for an awesome base to any grain bowl. Unlike other salads, this one won't leave you hungry. This recipe is great to serve up at party or as an easy dinner dish. Be sure to slice up some limes and garnish this bowl with cilantro.

6. Black Bean-Sweet Potato Tacos with Cilantro & Sour Cream

We're willing to bet that these veggie black bean tacos are going to become your staple taco recipe. Why? Because we know a staple recipe when we taste it! These tacos are made with roasted sweet potatoes and onions layered under mashed black beans. Corn tortillas are must for this one!
