Beany Tacos

Beany Tacos

Flushed by the success of recent Fajhita Quesadilla meals I thought I would try Tacos.

I stuck to the tried & tested Rose Elliot beany sauce, although I forgot to put the red pepper in the pan, so we had that as an accompaniment along with some avocado, grated carrot, salad & grated cheese.

Everyone loved it!  DD2 (1.9) wasn’t too keen on the Taco shells, but (as usual) scoffed the beany mix down as fast as she could.  DD1 (4.3) ate them quite happily, although she did ask if next time she could have bread instead of the taco shells!
