Black Bean Taco Filling (Vegan)- It's REALLY Good

Don't let the Vegan part turn you a way from this recipe, its really good.  It is very flavorful and you used it just like taco meat.  Our 4year old little boy first tried this and he ate 4 full tacos, he loved it.  He probably could have eaten more but his hollow leg couldn't hold any more. You could always go 50/50 with pinto beans.

1    Tbls Olive Oil
1    Medium Onion diced
2    Clove Garlic Minced
1    Bell Pepper Chopped
2    (15oz) cans black beans, rinsed, drained and mashed (or about 4 cups of cookedbeans)
2    Tbls cornmeal
1 ½ Tbls Cumin
1    tsp Paprika
1    tsp Cayenne Pepper
1    tsp Chili Powder
1    Cup Salsa

In a skillet heat oil over medium heat, add and sauté the onions, garlic and bell pepper until tender.  Add the mashed beans, cornmeal, the spices and salsa.  Cover and cook about 5 minutes.

Use just like taco meat.  It really tastes good and is worth a try.  It is now in our permanent recipe book.
