What you do:

  1. For the tacos, in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil. Once warm, add black beans, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, smoked paprika, parsley, and cumin mixing together, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  2. For the chipotle sauce, into a high-powered blender, add all ingredients and blend until sauce becomes creamy. Pour into tightly sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use. 
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place tortillas directly on rack. Turn off oven once heated and let tortillas warm for 2 minutes. Remove from oven.
  4. Keep oven at 400 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. To assemble tacos, add 2 spoonfuls of cooked black beans atop one side of warm tortilla followed by one spoonful chopped onions and vegan cheese shreds. Fold one side atop other (overlapping) into a half moon shape. Press down slightly and add to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients, spreading out a bit, about 1 inch apart.
    Gently place another baking sheet atop tacos to ensure they remain flat while baking.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes or until tortillas become crispy and cheese shreds have melted. To serve, cut each taco in half and placed unto a serving platter, lining up next to each other. Spoon on sliced avocado, guacamole, salsa, roasted tomatoes, and drizzle with chipotle sauce. Serve warm.
