August 12, 2010: Spice up Refried Beans on Taco Night!

I get very bored with the typical soft taco that is served in my house hold.  Tonight I decided to try something completely different.  I made the usual guac, chopped up fresh tomatoes, romaine lettuce and shredded some sharp white cheddar cheese.  The beans on the other hand I wanted to taste different.

We bought a soft taco dinner kit which comes with a taco seasoning packet and taco sauce.  I warmed up the soft tacos in the microwave and took the can of vegetarian refried beans and spiced it up using the taco sauce and a few other ingredients.  I warmed the beans in a sauce pan, added a packet of Sazon, the entire packet of taco sauce and 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro.  I must say it added the right kick I looked for.  Usually I hesitate to try anything new at home especially since my family is full of picky eaters (minus my dad, he is like a vacuum. We give him the leftovers).

Next time I want to add some sauteed veggies to my tacos or maybe use a different kind of bean rather than refried.

More food for your thoughts later readers!

Peace, love and no beef!
