Vegetarian Tacos

To watch this video recipe please click HERE!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday! Today's recipe is another healthy recipe: "Vegetarian Taco", this recipe is full with flavors, and good things for your body, it does have some carbs because I added potatoes to it, but I believe everything is good in moderation. I don't think I could ever go on a no-carb diet, just because I love potatoes and pasta so much, anyway, I read somewhere, that potatoes are good carbs and are high in vitamins and minerals. I combined them with beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers and corn, all in a whole wheat tortilla, and I assure you, they make a perfect meal without the need of any meat. This one is not only healthy but it is also easy and very satisfying! Even if you are a meat-lover, you wont regret eating this Taco! I hope you give it a try! Stay tuned for more Vegetarian Meals, I will be posting new vegetarian recipes at least every other week!

Makes 5-6 tacos (large whole wheat Tortilla)
Ingredients:

1 12oz can Pinto beans (or any other bean you like)
1 11oz can Corn kernels and bell peppers

1 minced garlic clove
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup water
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Rinse and drain the beans and corn kernels.

In a large skillet, add the water, season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, add in the potatoes and cook them on medium high for 5 minutes. Cover the skillet with a lid.

After 5 minutes, the water should be almost gone, add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, and the minced garlic, stir and also add the onions, jalapeno peppers, and the tomatoes, season with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, stir fry for about 3 minutes just until the garlic and onion become soft.

After 3 minutes add in the beans and the corn kernels. Season with 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce, ground black pepper to taste and 1 teaspoon of dry oregano, taste the flavor and add any salt if needed. Cook for 4-5 minutes just until the beans are heated through.

Heat up the tortillas. Serve the bean mixture over the tortilla, sprinkle with some cheese if you like and enjoy!
