Taco Salad

With the weather warming up, all I want for dinner is salad.  This is a long-time favourite of mine.  Its easy to throw together and oh-so-satisfying.  I make it with either homemade refried beans or with lean ground beef, depending on which side of the flexitarian spectrum I’m leaning towards that day.  I had Steak Tagliata yesterday, so today I went for the beans.

Making your own refried beans is as easy as frying up some garlic in a pan and dumping in the entire contents (water and all) of a can of black beans in.  Simmer, stirring frequently, until the liquid is mostly gone, add a small handful of minced cilantro and some salt to taste and you’re good to go.  For the beef option, just brown 500g lean ground beef with 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp chilli powder.
