Beef-less Taco Filling Premium PD Recipe


This hearty taco filling tastes like you used a store bought seasoning packet, but it’s free of MSG, additives and sugar. Let your pressure cooker or slow cooker do the work, while you chop a few toppings, blend some salsa and warm up corn tortillas for an easy week night taco party.

    I made this in the pressure cooker and it was delicious! I served it with a whole Mexican spread: Unfried Black Beans, Not-Yo Cheeze Sauce, Guac-Faux-Mole, Sour Cream Dream, Jalapeno Corn Relish, Crispy Corn Tortillas, salad, salsa, and brown rice. This food is as good as it gets…filling, satisfying, delicious, and healthy! Thank you for another amazing recipe, Julie!

    Good question! I use a Secura and it only has one setting.

    Has anyone tried this using the InstaPot pressure cooker?

    I do not have either appliance. Can you tell me if this recipe will work on a traditional stove?

      I have not tested it for liquid ratio amounts and timing on the stove top. If you try it on the stove top, I suggest using the pressure cooking measurements for water and adding one additional cup of water to start, bringing it to a boil then cover and simmer on medium-low with the lid on. Check to see that additional water isn’t need as it simmers until Urad is tender. I would think it would take about 30-45 minutes(keep checking)? Not sure as I haven’t tested it. Check local good will or second hand shops for a slow cooker. They always have them for $5.00 to $10.00.

    I am not familiar with either of these types of black beans. Are they just normal black beans?

      These are much smaller than black beans. If you click on the green highlighted ingredient it will show you in detail what the ingredient is.

    Oh, another question! By corn flour, do you mean cornmeal or cornstarch? Thank you!

    Whipped this up in my pressure cooker tonight. So easy! Love the flavor of the beans. Planning to serve it up as nachos, as tacos and mixed in with my spanish rice!

    Having trouble getting those specific beans. Can lentils be substituted?

      The cooking time may need to be adjust and the texture wouldn’t be as similar to crumbled beef. They can be ordered using the green link or if you have a Middle Eastern or Indian market they will have them.
