Black Bean Taquitos with Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dipping Sauce


This dish was beyond delicious! I was a little worried because I had to make quite a bit of changes from the original recipes but it turned out amazing! I've already made it twice in one week! Recipes inspired by Our Best Bites cookbook and modified to our liking.

Black Bean Taquitos
-can black beans drained and rinsed
-2 tablespoons of your favorite salsa (we love herdez)
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/2 teaspoon cumin
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
-1/4 teaspoon pepper
-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (one lime juiced)
-a few handfuls fresh spinach
-3/4 cup frozen corn
-1 can diced green chillies
-1 package of corn tortillas (check ingredients, should only be 3 simple ingredients)
-olive oil

Add 3/4 cup beans in blender or food processor with the salsa, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Blend until smooth. Put mixture in a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients, (except tortillas), including the rest of the beans, stir.

Preheat Oven to 425. Heat corn tortillas one at a time on a frying pan just until they are soft enough to bend without ripping. Immediately place a large spoonful of the mixture into each heated tortilla as they are heated and roll placing seam side down in a 9x13 pan. Spray or brush tops of taquitos with extra virgin olive oil and bake in the oven 20-25 min or until edgers are golden brown and crisp. While those are baking prepare Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dipping Sauce

Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dipping Sauce 
 -1 cup veganaise or your favorite good ingredient mayo
-3 teaspoons apple cider vinager
-1 tablespoon parsley
-few shakes of chives
-few shakes of dill
-1 teaspoon onion powder
-1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
-salt and pepper to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon of each)
-1 lime juiced
-2 garlic cloves
-1/2 cup chopped cilantro
-1/4 cup green salsa (we use herdez)
-hot sauce/tabasco to taste

Mix all the above ingredients together, if possible make this dressing a few hours ahead of time and refrigerate so flavors can combine and sauce thickens. Either way it's so delicious with the taquitos!!
