Gastroporn by way of Trader Joe's: Black bean & veggie tacos
I "kinda sorta" (look at me employing my academic words in non-academic writing) cheated here, but not without good reason. TJ's introduced a cut veggie cooking pack---which I think they actually introduce and re-introduce frequently. This one bursts with a colorful mix of baby carrots, yellow squash, zucchini, red onions and acorn squash. As for the black bean interior, I cooked an organic can of black beans with pico de gallo salsa from my farmer's market, cilantro and tomatoes, and spread it on a blue corn tortilla. And the best part is the topping---a couple of dollops of Greek yogurt---this multipurpose magic murders sour cream any day. Try it and be pleasantly surprised and use the remaining amount to blend a date shake and call it a tex-mex-a-rab fusion night.
