Vegetarian Bean Taco

Who doesn’t like tacos? I love both soft and hard shell tacos. It resembles with Indian food with spices and flavours. These tacos can be a quick weeknight dinner or weekend meal. Very easy to prepare and it can be ready in 10-15 mins. I like to prepare bean paste at home but you can either use canned refried beans or just canned whole beans and finish cooking at home. I always have taco shells in my pantry. I also keep dry black beans and kidney beans at home. You can keep everything ready and everyone can assemble their own tacos. You can involve kids too.

This recipe serves 2 people.
