I love Seattle. I have never been happier with where I live since I moved here from Los Angeles. The weather, the city, the Sound, the absolutely amazing foodie restaurants, everything. Having said that...there is one thing I truly miss about L.A. I'll give you hint. It's not the sun and perfectly blue skies (gross).
The mexican food. OMG the mexican food. I'll admit I took it for granted. Just assumed it was the same everywhere. AKA amazing. Well........it's not. Seattle has almost everything I could ever ask for in a city, with one teensy exception. I've searched. And searched. Aaaand seeeearched. I've been given some recommendations...Turns out I'm just seriously spoiled when it comes to mexican food. I will say, I've found one decent place so far that resembles the taste of Mexican food down south: El Chupacabra, with street style tacos, enchiladas, stiff margaritas and not a blender in site. Decorated like Day of the Dead too!
But man. Most of the time when I'm jonesin' for some serious Mexican cuisine up here, I usually just gotta whip it up myself. Which brings me to these wonderfully delicious Grilled Yellow Corn and Black Bean Tacos!!!
This particular recipe is so easy; simple ingredients yet lots of flavor! I've been experimenting with corn on the cob during this warmer weather and just a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper goes a loooooong way. I ate almost half a cob before getting it to the mixing bowl!!!
Seriously guys, SOOO GOOD! Oh and healthy. AND vegetarian. Super bonus right? You can even just remove the queso and it's vegan! So many options. Make sure to add that lime juice and squeeze a little extra on top just before you eat! Gives a little extra zing to these Grilled Yellow Corn and Black Bean Tacos, which have rapidly become one of my favorites. It's just so easy, quick, and perfect for summer! And they'll definitely satisfy any mexican food craving heading your way :-).Print
