Exploring in the kitchen: Vegetarian Tacos
I have been so busy these past couple of weeks with work and this women's group I am involved in that I will be singing and speaking at. The busyness has had me eating on the go and what that usually means is hardly anything. I cannot eat much fast food due to the Gluten Allergy and I am a very picky eater for the most part. I really enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen and I recently have been able to do some really simple things that is healthy and easy to make with my busy lifestyle.
Last night I was craving tacos but I did not want meat. I remembered that I sent my First Lady a recipe to try for vegetarian tacos but I could not remember when and where I sent it. So while I was waiting for her to find the recipe, I googled vegetarian tacos and was locked on this roasted corn and bean taco. What is funny is that she sent me a link for roasted corn tacos as well! I was like it is fate!
So I was at Trader Joe's gathering my groceries for my tacos and they were having a sampling for this "Game Day" snack and it was awesome. I was like this could be a part of my taco filling! So with those few recipes, I came up with my little rendition of all of them.
My Vegetarian Gluten Free Tacos
Jar of Salsa
Frozen Bag of Roasted Corn
Quattro Formaggio Cheese or Any other cheese that you prefer
First I poured the can of black beans in a medium sized pot
Next I poured half the frozen bag of corn and and some of the veggie mix in a pan and sauteed it in olive oil
Then I poured the whole jar of salsa in the veggie mix.
Then dumped the mix in the medium pot with the beans.
I love avocado so I decided to slice it and add that. And VOILA! Veggie Tacos.
They were the bomb. I had enough for lunch and dinner again.
Instead of the tortillas this would make a great chip dip, burrito filling and even as a chili. It was so good.
If you try it out or have a different way to do it please share!
Talk with you soon!
Peace and Blessings,
