    good flavor, don't skimp on the cilantro; way too salty, will skip the salt next time

    I thought these were just okay. I thought the bean mixture was too dry and they didn't go well with the feta.

    This has become a simple staple in our house. I use grated cheddar for our daughter and feta for us.

    Tasty and easy to make. Didn’t have cilantro or lime so used parsley and lemon juice instead and added some garlic powder. As the recipe suggests, definitely drain the beans really well before mixing - I only half drained my tin as I thought it might make it easier to mash the beans but there was black juice dripping out when eating.. still delicious though!

    It was great! I will make it again. The filling makes enough for 2 nights, for a family of two.

    This turned out wonderfully! I seasoned the black bean mixture as I do for my black bean burgers- cumin, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder (or fresh garlic), red pepper flakes, chopped cilantro, parsley, salt and pepper, hot sauce (I used Tapatio), Worchester, white onion and an egg. If you use corn tortillas, don't forget to coat them with water or oil before cooking so they don't crack. Definitely recommend!

    Added diced tomatoes, onion, and jalapeno. I ate way too many and have zero regrets.

    Great dinner, served it with a nice salad. One note is that next time will use cheddar cheese because it's cheaper, plus I don't think the feta adds a lot to the flavor.

    It’s so easy and it makes my kids happy!!! Truth be told I enjoy it too! I mix things up a day before so the flavors mix. I also use butter to fry with. Just yum for not having meat in it. It’s been a go to for over a year now:

    Tasty and easy. Agree with previous reviews suggesting to mix the feta with the mashed beans before cooking. Took off one star because they definitely need salsa or a crema of some sort to serve

    First, I'm a little bit put-off by the other reviewers, who didn't use the right beans, taking off stars in reviews admitting the beans were wrong. But whatever, as they say in Rome, "haters gonna hate; potaters gonna potate." Uh... where was I? Fantastic tacos. I would make the following tweaks: 1. Use avocado oil, it's just so much better for you and tastes great 2. Stir in however much cheese you want to use into the beans right before you put them in the pan. It's easier and less error-prone. 3. I put a little green salsa on these and had to stop myself at 3. Coulda really gone HAM on some more tacos. Great recipe, 5 stars, will absolutely make again, but I will (continue to) use the right beans when I do.

    Tasty but not enough veg, needs paprika and other additions. Made second time with maïs and rode paprika. Much better.

    Very tasty. I’ll make them again.

    Easy, fast, and cheap to make, however, I made these with cotija cheese and the were bland. Also made with dried beans cooked in an insta pot and they were still too hard and the texture wasn't right—next time I'm definitely using canned, though that adds a bit to the cost. I added esquites and tomatillo salsa and all together they were a delicious combo, but these tacos can't stand alone.

    It was good however, I will have to make again using the correct beans. My husband picked up beans in the bag and they didn’t get soft enough but the taste was good. It does seem like it’s missing something can’t pinpoint what.

    Very very delicious!!! I loved all of the flavours mixed and would definitely make again even though it can't be made for a sit down dinner as they are eaten as they come off of the pan :). Maybe for a barbecue type of party as a vegetarian option? Or perhaps if it rains! OR making them on a griddle where you could make more at once!!!

    Very tasty. I’ll use less salt next time though

    it turned out a bit salty for me. For the next time i probably wont add salt to it.

    Made it twice and a family hit both times. Flour tortillas worked fine. Added Mexican queso fresco and was great. Cooks faster on a griddle where I could make several at a time.

    Turned out really good! I am one of those people who can’t stand cilantro, so I skipped that ingredient and went extra heavy on the lime - sooooo yummy and super easy to prepare. Served them with a mild chunky salsa and some sour cream. Adding this one into the regular dinner rotation!
