Cook's Hideout: Vegetarian Tacos with Pinto Beans & Cheese

Vegetarian Tacos with Pinto Beans & Cheese

Blogging Marathon# 28: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Kid's Delight - 5 Ingredient Fix
Dish: Vegetarian Tacos with Pinto Beans & Cheese

Today's dish for Kid's Delight - 5 ingredient fix is my son's latest favorite. My 5 year old is slowly getting better at trying ingredients and dishes these days (knock on wood). I was surprised when he wanted me to order 'tacos' at Chipotle and surprised me even more when he liked them a LOT. He especially loved the corn salsa they put on his tacos and now he says that corn is his favorite veggie (not sure how long that will last). Anyway, right now I'm a happy camper because at least he's willing to try something new instead of just saying 'no' for everything.

I wanted to make tacos for him at home and what better day than today, 'Cinco de Mayo' (5th of May) to post them here for Valli's Kid's Delight event being hosted by me this month. 
Again this is a formula rather than a recipe and most of what I used are canned or jarred or pre-made for convenience. It takes no time to make tacos if you have all the components ready. Also they are very flexible and can be customized as per individual likes and dislikes. They can be healthy and very filling.
Vegetarian Tacos with Pinto Beans & Cheese
Taco Shells - Soft flour tortillas or Corn tortillas or Hard Corn Taco shells
Beans - Pinto beans, black beans, Red kidney beans, refried beans 
Salsa - Hot, medium or mild (I used corn-tomato relish)
Grated Cheese - Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, Cheddar etc.
Lettuce - Romaine, Iceberg etc., chopped into thin strips

  • If using soft flour tortilla, then char it right over the stove. If using corn tortillas, then microwave it for few seconds.
  • Pile up all the toppings on the tortillas and enjoy!!
