Preparation

  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.
