When I made the chicken tacos, Dave commented that he thought they’d be almost as good without the chicken. I decided to put that to the test. So, I made tacos without any meat. I have to say, they were delicious, and easier to make. I made them exactly the same way I made the chicken tacos, but I replaced the meat with refried beans. Yes, the refried beans will add some saturated fat, but I thought they would also add some flavor, and I really think they did.
I fried the shells, so a bit of fat in there and I made guacamole. I also used sour cream and cheese (so a little more fat) but I think it’s ok. I didn’t tell Dave they were meatless until he noticed, which of course he did, but he said they were really good. Because I didn’t make meat it didn’t take as long to make the tacos, and I had a few less dishes to wash, which was nice. If you like the flour shells you could heat all of this stuff up in the microwave in minutes for a qick and easy meal.
