It's a twenty minute dinner, chop a salad, nuke some beans, add salsa and get ready to rip. Okay, well the ripping will come later.....unless you had the foresight to take a beano. I rushed around the house in my jammies to get this dinner ready. Why? Burn Notice (that's a show) is addictive, what can I say?
P.S My method for tacos is ....er, dashes. You know every time you shake what god gave you........the spice sprinkler?
- 1 can kidney beans
- 2 dashes Taco seasoning
- dash of salt
- 6 dashes of oregano (or italian seasoning)
- 3 dashes of crushed pepper
- 5 dashes of garlic powder
- Bowlful of chopped salad, (cukes, onion, tomato, bells, carrots, green onions)
- Bowlful chopped lettuce
Mix all of those ingredients together into a bowl (excluding the salad, lettuce, and salsa), add 2 TB of water and nuke on high for 5 minutes. Keep them covered or you will get crunchy beans. While they are cooking get your salad ready.
When your beans are done, mash them until slighty creamy/slightly still in whole pieces. Microwave two taco shells for 30 seconds (all microwaves differ from each other), watch your shells like a hawk, these babies burn in.05 seconds. One sec they are a sizzling golden yellow, and the next a burnt ridge peeks over the taco shells bum. Spread your bean mixture on one side of the taco (pick a wall), add a TB of salsa to the bean side spreading well, then add your salad, and lastly lettuce. You can add cheese, but beans create such a creamy texture you might not even want it anymore!
