We are all about the tacos...

Seeing as how I never got around to posting a menu last week, and since this week is practically finished, I think I will focus on our favorite meal.


I don't think we've ever declared it to be our favorite. But I usually make it once a week.

And no one complains.

That says "favorite" to me.

I always start with a can of refried black beans.
This is key.

It's like the glue that holds everything together. Because who wants a taco blow-out?

The fillings vary.

Our current favorite is a zucchini-squash mixture. I chop it small and add it to a hot skillet with some onion and cook until soft.

Other common fillers: sautéed peppers, shredded cabbage, avocados, salad greens, corn, tofu, and tomatoes.

I think you can put just about anything in a corn tortilla, add some salsa, and call it dinner.

And don't forget the sour cream.

Some words on sour cream: There are good dairy free versions out there. I like the Follow Your Heart brand. But you's just not the same.

This is one of those areas where I break the rules. I use sour cream made from milk that comes from a cow. It just tastes better.

I've accepted the fact that I'm not willing to compromise on sour cream.

Salsa, however, lends itself to experimentation.

Go on. Get crazy.
