easy taco cups recipe
Our dad’s mom was born and raised in Mexico. We’ve talked about our Nana a lot and our love of Mexican food from the weekly Sunday get togethers at her house Her fridge was always filled with lemonade, cookie dough and Herdez salsa…which makes sense since it’s Mexico’s number one salsa brand. With Herdez’s new refried beans pouches, now you can taste tradition with that home-cooked taste! They’re so easy to prepare and come in four different flavors: Queso, Chorizo, Jalapeno and Traditional. We tried their Traditional Refried Beans pouch to make our easy taco cups recipe, they took five minutes which made for a fast meal!
Real Mexican food is about more than flavor, it’s got passion, tradition and making meals together in the kitchen. Frijoles con todo! Our favorite breakfast is a breakfast burrito filled with eggs, bacon, refried beans and salsa! Refried beans are great with it all, breakfast, lunch, dinner, main dish, side dish…get creative! Cut down the kitchen time to loiter at the table longer to visit. They pouches are currently available here in Phoenix plus in San Diego, Vegas, Denver, San Antonio, Houston and Des Moines. The rest of you will soon have these easy to prepare, gluten free, convenient refried beans.
To make these easy taco cups, you’ll need a handful of ingredients to get food to the table fast! We have seven kids between us and know the importance of having dinner ready on time! Enjoy this fast Mexican food recipe, it’s one of our favorites.
