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!
