Simple Soft Tacos


Here's a simple, tasty taco recipe.

Ingredients
Taco Meat:
  • 12 oz can of pinto beans
  • 8 oz jar of salsa
  • 8 oz water
  • 1 cup TVP dry crumbles
  • packet of taco seasoning
Everything Else (all are optional):
  • Hot sauce
  • 4 green onions
  • 1/2 cup shredded soy cheese
  • 1/4 cup soy sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • guacamole or avocados
  • package of tortillas

Directions
  1. Heat a large skillet on the stove-top.
  2. Add everything listed for taco meat above into the skillet and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and stir frequently until liquid reduces to your liking.
  4. Warm tortillas in microwave.
  5. Make your own taco and enjoy!
You can serve this with a side salad, corn, rice, or whatever you like.

(The recipe doesn't come from Vegan Planet, shown in the photo, though I do highly recommend that cookbook.)
