If there's one type of recipe we could all use a little more of right now, it's something quick, easy, and delicious. We're excited to share this new recipe with you that checks all of those boxes and more! Drumroll ..... introducing the first taco recipe from Farm Star Living: Potato & Black Bean Tacos!

We're loving this fast and uncomplicated recipe that's made with a few familiar and healthy ingredients including potatoes, black beans, onions, garlic, cilantro, and spices inspired by Mexican cuisine. This recipe is vegan and vegetarian-friendly, but the best part about this dish is that you can customize to your taste and liking. If you're wanting more protein, add some tofu, tempeh, steak, or chicken. Not into tortillas? Make a big, satisfying taco salad and serve all of the ingredients atop a pile of lettuces. Just make sure you don't skip the most important ingredient – the Goldust® Potatoes from Green Giant™ Fresh.

These potatoes are known throughout the fresh potato industry as the very best yellow potato available – and for good reason. It’s a perfect union with smooth yellow skin and vivid yellow flesh. When cooked, the dense flesh cooks to a wonderful buttery deliciousness. Green Giant™ Fresh suggests using this particular potato when baking, broiling, mashing, steaming, roasting, grilling, or microwaving which makes them the perfect potato for this taco recipe.
