HeartBeet Bean Tacos

I’ve partnered with Home Made Simple to bring y’all these HeartBeet Bean Tacos, as always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep this blog spinning.

Gorgeous beetroot and filling Pinto Beans are sautéed in onions, ginger, garlic and a tasty blend of spices, piled onto tacos and topped off with creamy guacamole in these tasty (yet messy), vegan HeartBeet Bean Tacos!

Easy Beetroot Bean Tacos

I heart beets in a big way, a few years ago I even had a beet-ified blog year! So, when it came to naming these tacos, heart + beet made sense – right?!

With taste-bud teasing spices like coriander, cumin, turmeric, smoked paprika, fresh garlic, fresh ginger and chili powder, this spicy beetroot and pinto bean filling is delicious enough to enjoy all by itself, or mixed in with some fresh kale to make a salad.

Ingredients To Make Messy HeartBeet Bean Tacos

However, piled into a taco with some creamy guacamole, this makes for one heck of a tasty (though messy) vegetarian meal option. My daughter and I have been trying to incorporate more plant-based meals into our week and, for those times, beets are always a favorite.

Cleaning With Plant Based Home made simple products after making Heartbeet bean tacos

But, beets are messy! No matter if I bake them whole or cut them to use in a curry, they manage to get everywhere and stain everything. Last night my heart skipped a beat when I saw my dog running around with a red streak down the white fur on his chin and chest, only to find he had managed to get a hold of a wayward beet piece!

Cleaning Up After Beet Been Tacos With Home Made Simple Plant based products

Lately, we have given up dog shampoos and soaps in favor or a mixture of baking soda, plant-based dishwashing soap like Home Made Simple’s, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I am not a vet and don’t intend for this to be taken as medical or otherwise advice of any sort – but, we notice that our dogs seem to smell fresher this way and have less skin and gastro issues, again, this is just what seems to work for our dogs.

After Earth Day, I thought that our little family should not only try and eat plant-based, but look for more ways to incorporate plant-based products into our lives. And that’s where Home Made Simple’s line of products come into play!

Home Made Simple Products In Action at our home.

My daughter is not a fan of doing dishes but she didn’t complain about washing up our dishes and pans with Home Made Simple’s Rosemary Dish Soap after our dinner of HeartBeet Bean Tacos. I have been loving the aroma left behind after wiping counters and cabinets with Home Made Simple’s Rosemary Scented Multi-Purpose Cleaner.

Gorgeous beetroot and filling Pinto Beans are sautéed in onions, ginger, garlic and a tasty blend of spices, piled onto tacos and topped off with creamy guacamole in these tasty (yet messy), vegetarian HeartBeet Bean Tacos!


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • ½ inch piece of ginger peeled
  • 5 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 large beet washed
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cilantro for garnish optional


  • Peel and dice onion.
  • Add oil to a large pan and add in the onion and let it saute 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • While onion is sauteing, peel garlic and chop it up with the ginger.
  • Also prep the beet by peeling it (I used a vegetable peeler) and then chopping it up into rough cubes.
  • Add garlic, ginger and beets to the onions and mix well.
  • Then add in the coriander, cumin, turmeric, chili and smoked paprika. Cover and let cook about 7-10 minutes. If the beets are cut into small cubes, they will be tender at this time.
  • Drain and rinse the canned pinto beans. Then add the pinto beans into the pan with the beet and spices, and mix well for a couple of minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with cilantro.


  • Spoon filling into your favorite tacos, top with your favorite guacamole and/or Greek yogurt and enjoy!


Please note, nutritional info is for the beet and bean filling only and does not include the tortillas, guacamole or any other toppings.

  10. I use vinegar a lot for cleaning some things because it’s all natural. Will definitely have to check out Home Made Simple next time I’m out and about! Now, tacos! I LOVE beet and love that these are packed full of goodness! Talk about hearty and nutritious! Pile on the guacamole, girlfriend. P.S. the messier the better! There’s napkins for that 😉 Have an awesome weekend! XOXO

  11. I love the name of this recipe, Shashi! It’s perfect for these tacos…and the timing is also perfect for Cinco de Mayo this weekend. Let’s celebrate with some yummy tacos! 🙂 But you said it. Beets are messy. Whenever I cook with beets, I look like an actor from a below-budget horror film. Haha! I’ll have to check out Home Made Simple for sure. That rosemary cleaner sounds like an awesome idea for the kitchen! (Except it’ll just make me hungry every time I use it…haha!) Hope you and Lil S have a great weekend ahead. Enjoy that GA weather for me!
