3 golden beets

1 15-oz can of black beans

2 vine tomatoes

1 avocado

½ sweet onion, diced

1 jalapeño, diced

1 lime

¼ cup cilantro, chopped

Sea salt (optional)

Pepper (optional)


How to Make It


1 Start by peeling the taro root and golden beets. Then slice them into thin chips and add them to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Add some salt to the chips and bake at 450 degrees F for 45 minutes or until the chips become crispy.

2 Next add a can of black beans to a pot with salt and pepper. Cook on low heat and stir to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

4 For the pico de gallo, dice your vine tomatoes and add them to a bowl with ¼ of the diced sweet onion, ½ of the diced jalapeño and an ⅛ cup chopped cilantro. Then squeeze half of a lime into the bowl along with a pinch of sea salt. Lastly, use a fork to mix everything together.

5 Place your taro and beet chips on a plate and top them with your warm black beans a scoop of guacamole and a scoop of pico de gallo. Garnish with a little fresh cilantro and enjoy!
