Ms. Bear's Kitchen: Throwback taco Thursday
We were thinking about what to make for the column this week. I have been a little obsessed lately with Chipotle (which seriously has to stop, especially the chips and salsa!), so we started thinking about Mexican food. Then I started thinking about the popularity of Throwback Thursday on Facebook, and we decided to tie the two together. You see, my mother absolutely loved tacos. Now my mom, in her old age, was quite a little thing, but boy, could she put away the tacos! Not one or two, but seriously at least three or four! It was such a joy to watch her enjoying them as we ate and talked. So tonight, we remembered my mother as we enjoyed some Mexican food.
Here is what you need for tonight's dinner....it is quick and easy with leftovers to spare...
*1 pound of ground beef, cooked
*1 can grilling beans, Texas ranchero flavor
*1 can refried beans
*1 box taco shells and seasoning
*Whole wheat tortillas
*Chopped tomatoes and chopped onions
*1 package Spanish rice, microwaveable if you want to save time
