A few weeks ago, Marcia Washburn, author of Homemade Convenience Food in 15 Minutes, gave away a copy of her book here at MMCW. It was a fun give away complete with some of our wonderful readers sharing family favorite quick meals.
One of the recipes shared was Black Bean Taquitos by Georgette. It’s fast, kid friendly, and healthy to boot. It is perfect for lunch or dinner. Georgette says the original recipe comes from Six O’Clock Scramble, a membership fee based recipe site.
Today, on Black-Friday, we could all probably use a healthy and fast dinner option.
Black Friday Black Bean Taquitos
1 can refried beans
1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 Tsp cumin
2 Tsp chili powder
1/2 Tsp minced garlic
Scallions or onions, optional
1 cup of Mexican Four Blend shredded cheese. (Cheddar works well as does pepper jack for a spicy version.)
Mash beans, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and spices up in a pot and heat through. Add in cheese and turn off heat. Fill tortillas and eat as is or toast in the oven for a few minutes.
Salsa or sour cream is optional.
Optional fillings include leftover chicken, beef, or pork. Simply shred meat and fill tortilla along with bean mixture.
Georgette’s freezer tip: dice up onions and freeze to save time while cooking.
