Pinto bean tacos. 5/5/20

Happy Cinco de Mayo! To honor this quasi-holiday and because it is Tuesday we are having tacos! Since I am trying to do an every other day vegan/vegetarian dinner, we are preparing pinto bean tacos accompanied by cole slaw. My crema for the tacos and the coleslaw are not vegan but are vegetarian.

We put some salsa verde and cumin in the beans and also in the yogurt crema for additional flavor. The dressing for the cole slaw is a mixture of mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, a little vinegar, lime juice, cumin, and salt.

A great thing about tacos is that the can be made with beef, pork, chicken, fish, shrimp, or vegetarian. You can go a whole month of Taco Tuesdays without repeating your protein. And who doesn’t like tacos!?
