Bean and Rice taco recipe
This taco recipe was something I threw together last night. It could easily be adapted to your taste, and could be converted to vegetarian or even vegan with a few substitutions.
14.5 oz can kidney beans
1 cup basmati rice
chicken buillion cube
corn or flour tortillas
red pepper sauce
bbq sauce (i made up a small batch, very simple)
frying oil of your choice
Drain the beans, and reserve liquid. Add enough water to make up the amount of water needed to prepare your rice, and add the buillion cube. Boil water, and prepare rice as per package directions. You can add the beans at any time. Add in any spices like cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste. You can also add the red pepper sauce. I needed some more liquid, so I added a 1/4 cup of salsa to it and put the cover back on the pot.
When the beans and rice are done, fry your tortillas in a little oil. Not till they are crispy, just to brown them a little. Then spoon some bbq sauce (mine was somewhat spicy) on the tortilla, add some bean and rice mix, and top with cheese if you like. At this point you can put any veggies you like on it. Avocado (or guac), green onions, and pico salsa would be great! Or you could add shredded or cubed chicken for meat eaters. You could use burrito size tortillas and make burritos too.
I had a lot of fun with this, let me know if you add (or subtract) something and find it works well! Hard to even call it a recipe as it was sort of a collaboration of things that could have been used any number of ways.
