Black Bean Taco Salad with Chipotle and Garlic

When it comes to making an easy, filling, and delicious meal, there are a few go-to options I always rely on in the kitchen. One of those happens to be a taco salad. Not only are they satisfying, but they are bright in color, easy to put together, and full of flavor and texture. Today, I want to share a scrumptious black bean taco salad with chipotle and garlic, with the help of McCormick’s Skillet Sauce!

Black Bean Taco Salad with Chipotle and Garlic

The Sunday Supper tastemakers are all excited to be sharing recipes utilizing the different Skillet Sauces made by McCormick. With a collection of seven different styles, there are many flavor options to consider. I knew the Taco with Chipotle and Garlic would be right up my alley for this dish.

The sauce itself has a nice, robust flavor. There is a hint of the smoky chipotle peppers included, and it gives the sauce just enough kick! As for how easy it was to implement the sauce into my dish? A snap. McCormick includes suggested recipe instructions right on the packet, but you can let your creative juices flow like I did as well. It only takes a few minutes to put everything together: just simmer and stir! Everything came together in one skillet on my stove top, so not only was it a quick and delicious meal to create, but it was a breeze to clean up afterward as well. Win-win!

I really enjoy this salad for its versatility. It’s a meatless option for those of you who would like it, but you could also add some sort of meat into the mix (or top the salad with grilled chicken or shrimp, for example). It’s a “create your own adventure” style meal, if you will! Black beans are my absolute favorite type of bean to enjoy, and they pack a nice punch of protein to fill you up. The contrast between the cool salad greens and the warm black bean mixture is a great element as well. And don’t forget guacamole. It isn’t a taco salad without guacamole involved, if you ask me!
