A note about serious food allergies

Introduce your meatless Mondays to Taco Tuesdays… or Tex-Mex Tuesdays, whatever alliteration works for you. In fact, the most important introduction will be your mouth to this fiesta of flavor. Black beans flavored with chile and cumin seasoning are added to corn and poblano, filling these tortillas with bulky flavor. Queso fresco, cilantro, and crunchy onions top these tacos with tangible, toothsome, Texas-tinged tastes. Whatever day, these are delights. Tip: Easier way to mince cilantro? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using a protein, add to hot pan first in Step 2, with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. (Separate steak strips and pat dry before adding). If using steak strips or ground beef, stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. If using ground pork, stir occasionally until no pink remains, 5-7 minutes. Drain pan after cooking meats if desired, then add corn and poblano. There may be extra filling.

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Cilantro Crema

    Mince cilantro (no need to stem).

    Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into 1/4" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands after prepping.

    Quarter lime.
