  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic clove
  • 4 cups Lacinato Kale
  • 2 cups Dark Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Coriander Seed
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 8 corn tortilla
  • 1/2 cup Onion, Raw
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 med Avocado


1 Heat the olive oil in a pan over low heat. Toss in garlic and kale and stir briefly. Cover the pan for about three minutes or until the kale becomes bright green and wilted.
2 Next add in your beans, spices, half a cup of water and sea salt. Turn up the heat to medium and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally until the moisture has mostly evaporated and the beans are soft and sizzling.
3 Add the taco mixture to the tortillas and go wild with your fixings, adding the onion, cilantro, avocado and hot sauce to serve.
