Bulgar Black Bean Filling ========================= This is a quick and easy vegetarian substitute for a ground beef-like texture without using a soy substitute. * 1 cup cooked, strained bulgar * 1/3 cup cooked black beans (or canned), rinsed and strained. Mix bulgar and black beans together. For better texture, slightly mash the black beans. Add your choice of seasonings to taste and serve. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Drunken Green Beans =================== Green beans are fine. Green beans cooked in beer are better. Maybe even the best. * 1 Surly fist full of green beans * half a beer * quarter cup vegetable broth * 2 cloves garlic * 1 Tbsp olive oil * some salt, whatever First peel and dice the garlic and sauté it in the olive oil. Before it gets all burned and ruined, add the beer and vegetable broth. As the liquid comes to a boil, cut the green beans up. Add the green beans and a pinch of salt and let them simmer for about five minutes. If you like your beans on the softer side you can let it go a little longer. But the trick is to pull them right after the color starts to turn and you've just made a delicious addition to any taco. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Sour Cream ========== Cool and tart, sour cream is an almost-essential part of the traditional American taco, and many others as well. tags: vegetarian

Kathy's Taco and Fajita Seasoning ================================= My cousin Kathy sent me this recipe for my birthday: Amazing taco/fajita seasoning – Use with any protein. It's a great recipe to quadruple so you have it ready for immediate taco needs. When making a big batch, use less salt. Combine: 2 tsp cumin 1 tsp EACH: paprika, onion powder, dried oregano, and kosher salt ½ tsp EACH: ground coriander, garlic powder and black pepper ¼ tsp EACH: red pepper flakes, ground ginger and cayenne pepper tags: vegetarian, vegan

bad-ass tortillas ===================== If you are making tacos, don't settle for corporate store bought tortillas. Make your own like a real person! First get a cast iron pan: ![](./pan.jpg) and then one of these bad-ass tortilla presses: ![](./tortillador.jpg) Buy your lard from a place like this: ![](./store.jpg) * 2 cups all purpose flour * 1/4 cup lard (cut into lil' pieces) * 1 teaspoon kosher salt * 2/3 tablespoon oil * 1/2 cup water (luke warm) Mix all ingredients together except oil and water. Drizzle oil over mixture and mix with hands. Add water and mix and knead again until doughy. Let chill for about an hour in plastic wrappers. Heat large cast iron skillet (or something more authentic if you've got it) over medium heat. Cut dough into about 12 pieces that are round. Use a proper tortilla press (or something more authentic if you've got it) to make 'em flat and then put on the skillet. Wait until the transparent parts turn opaque and flip em. Put cooked tortillas in a *dirty* cloth napkin to keep 'em warm. End recipe. Paz, amor, y dinero.
