      Hi Linda! I’m happy to! But I’m not sure which black bean taco recipe you’re talking about. Are you talking about the taco pinwheels? https://fantabulosity.com/easy-party-appetizer-taco-pinwheels
      Or we also have the chicken tacos with black beans: https://fantabulosity.com/dinner-recipe-quick-easy-soft-chicken-tacos/
      If it’s one of those, the links should take you to the instructions on how to put them together! But if you have any trouble finding it, please let me know! 🙂
