Vegetarian Pinto Bean Tacos

the body book - the longevity nbook

Tacos are one of the most popular dinner table choices and rightfully so. The possibilities are endless and they always turn out incredible no matter what variation has been made. Many families worldwide have a dedicated “taco night” in their weekly meal plan menu. Taco Tuesday is a legit win every single time. This variation is a family favorite. It’s got a great and simple line-up and is perfectly appropriate for meatless nights or lifestyles. Beans are a staple in our household and they are a nutritional powerhouse. They are full of plant-based protein and fiber and are dirt cheap. Even opting for the canned goods is still such an affordable alternative. I personally love preparing my beans from scratch and for this dish I used homemade pinto beans.
