Tacos & Toppings


Taco Filling

  1. Heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Sauté until onion is almost translucent.
  2. Add paprika, chili powder, salt and chopped tomato. Cook until mixture is thick and most of the moisture from the tomatoes has evaporated.
  3. Mash 1/4 of the black beans before mixing them into the seasoned onion/garlic/tomato mixture. Stir in the rice. Add cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Assembling Tacos

  1. Fill warm tortillas with 1/4-1/3 cup taco filling, sprinkle with Daiya (microwave to melt if desired.) Top with a thin layer of salsa, chopped tomatoes, a generous amount of guacamole and plenty of lettuce. Enjoy!
