Shrimp and Black Bean Taco's

I ask myself often "what's for dinner" while perusing the pantry.   I think I'm great at putting a meal together on the fly for the family and this is one of those meals.   Black Beans, Salsa and Shrimp - ah ha - Tacos.   It turned out very yummy so it's a part of my Food Blog!   Enjoy!

Shrimp and Black Bean Taco's

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 C. salsa (I used a smoky Cornwell and Company)
  • 1 lb shrimp, deveined and tails removed
  • 1 T Cajun seasoning
  • Corn Tortilla's
  • Spinach leaves, rinsed and dry
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • Colby-Jack Cheese, grated
Directions:   Saute onion in olive oil until soft and almost carmalized.   Add drained black beans and salsa and cook, using a fork to crush some of the beans.   Reduce by half until thick and transfer to a bowl.   In the same saute pan, toss in the shrimp and season with a Cajun Spice of your choice.   You may have to add a bit more olive oil at this point.   Once cooked through, transfer to plate and assemble your taco's.   I layer spinach, black bean/salsa mixture, avocado slices, shrimp and cheese on one side of a warmed corn tortilla.   Fold and eat - it is that easy!
