DIRECTIONS
  1. Rinse and chop the produce accordingly.
  2. Make the BBQ black beans. Set a small pan to medium heat. Once hot, combine all barbecue sauce ingredients, and add them to the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the sauce has reduced by about ¼, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add black beans, and toss to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes, until black beans have taken up the flavor of the sauce. If the sauce becomes too thick, add water of vegetable stock as need. Season to taste.
  3. Make the salsa. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and toss to combine. Set aside until ready to serve. (Note: you can make this ahead of time to allow flavors to marinate for 30+ minutes in the refrigerator.)
  4. Make the tacos. Add black beans to corn tortilla, and top with mango salsa. Garnish with cilantro and fresh lime juice. Add chopped jalapenos or hot sauce for heat. Enjoy!
