Meatless Tacos Version 2.0

If you have read through my blog at all you can probably figure out that I love Mexican food and I am not going to let the whole "no meat" thing out damper on that! Tonight we tried a different version of meatless tacos. Now that Christmas is over and we are stuffed to the brim with junk (wonderful, delicious junk!) it is time for some good, slightly more healthy, home cooked food. It tasted great and we will have it again for sure. It takes no time at all to throw these together. I actually folded some laundry while it was cooking! Ok, here is what you will need:
*In a large skillet pour a 16oz jar of chunky salsa, 1.5 tsp chili powder, and a splash of water
*Bring to a boil
*Add in 1 cup of instant brown rice, remove from heat, and cover for 5-10 minutes
*While the rice is cooking, drain a can of black beans and a can of mexi corn

*When the rice is done cooking, give it a stir:

*Add in your beans and corn and stir
*Serve with shredded cheese on a tortilla (don't you love E's pink plate?!)


  1. Sounds yummy!

    All the best,
