recipe: taco tuesday

Tony and I chowed down last night on tacos. We had some less-than-impressive Mexican food Saturday evening, so it was nice to have some satisfying tacos. Plus, they only take a few minutes to put together on nights we work late.  

Tacos are kind of like salads in our house. I throw salads together with whatever's growing in the garden, was on sale at the grocery store, or happens to be open in the fridge. Same with tacos. Here's the particular mix of ingredients Tony wanted on his tacos last night:

Tony's Tuesday Tacos

  • 6-inch tortillas (3 per person) 
  • Refried beans (half a can per person) 
  • Chopped onion
  • Pickled jalapenos 
  • Tomato salsa
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Fresh cilantro
Other possible ingredients: sour cream, Tabasco, fresh chopped peppers, fresh chopped tomato, green chiles, black beans.

Heat the tortillas in a large frying pan over medium heat for a few minutes or in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Heat the refried beans on the stove.

Fill tortillas with beans. Add the veggies, salsa, cheese, and cilantro.
