happy cinco de mayo! in honor of cinco de mayo today, i thought i'd share a recipe for quick and easy vegetarian tacos.
the other day, we were pressed for time and we needed to quickly throw together something to eat for dinner. we grabbed a few ingredients that we had on hand and made vegetarian tacos in less than 5 minutes. even though there were only a few simple ingredients in them, we could not get over how good they were!
5 ingredients + 5 minutes = yummy tacos. i like that kind of math :-)
honestly, this can hardly be called a recipe. all you have to do is just throw a few things together and you have yummy tacos in less than 5 minutes.
so convenient if you are on the run or need to whip up a quick dinner or snack.
by the way did you notice that the date today is 5/5 and we are making tacos in 5 minutes with 5 ingredients? that's a lot of 5s. maybe someone should play 5 today on the lottery!
speaking of tacos . . . make your own taco seasoning and crock pot chicken tacos.
5 minute 5 ingredient vegetarian tacos
total time: 5 minutes
yields: 8 tacos
8 6-inch soft flour tortillas
8 teaspoons sour cream
1 (16 oz.) jar organic salsa
1 cup shredded mexican cheese (we used a combination of cheddar, monterey jack, and asadero)
1 (16 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
place the tortillas in a pan or on a griddle over medium-low heat. allow the tortillas to warm (about 1 minute for each side). lay the tortillas on a plate. spread approximately 1 teaspoon of sour cream and approximately 1 tablespoon of salsa evenly on each tortilla. arrange the shredded cheese in a line down the center of each tortilla. put the black beans in a bowl and microwave them for 1 minute. evenly distribute the beans between each tortilla, arranging them on top of the cheese.
