Black Bean and Rainbow Chard Tacos

Rainbow chard comes in a variety of colors including red, pink, orange or purple. Pick out the one that looks best in your market. Or, if rainbow chard is not available, red chard works well in this recipe, too. Mild in flavor, the chard is complemented by Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™ and Monterey Jack cheese in these tacos.
