5 minute 5 ingredient vegetarian tacos


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!


soft flour tortillas, sour cream, salsa, cheese, and black beans.  super simple and super delicious!

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

ingredients:
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

directions:
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.  


enjoy!
love, laurie
