Wash produce before use
Prep the vegetables and black beans
- Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces. Divide into two equal portions, one for the vegetable mixture and one for the slaw.
- Rinse the black beans.
- Divide the honey-lime vinaigrette base into two equal portions, one for the vegetable mixture and one for the slaw.
Cook the vegetables and black beans
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown and soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the onion and half the bell pepper, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the taco seasoning and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the tomatoes, black beans, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in half the honey-lime vinaigrette base. Season to taste with salt and pepper. While the vegetables and beans are cooking, prepare the slaw.
Make the slaw
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.
In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining honey-lime vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Add the cabbage, remaining bell pepper, and half the cilantro and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Warm the tortillas
- Remove 6  tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the 6  tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.
