I thought this recipe came from a vegetarian cookbook but after looking for it I discovered it must be an old family recipe from my dad. I love it. It is much tastier than refried beans and uses a lot less fat. Here in Denmark (and even in Spain) I can’t buy fresh corn tortillas so I make them. Recipe to follow in a separate post. Homemade salsas are also a must for a good taco.
2 cups dry pinto and/or kidney beans (a large bottle 64 oz? cooked beans could work) I soaked the beans over night and then put them in the pressure cooker for 30 minutes with bay leaves.
- 1 large onion
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 small can chopped tomatoes (400 gr.)
- salt/pepper to taste
- 1 tsp oregano
Saute onion and garlic in a pan until very well done. Add beans and smash them. I blend them in the Tmix. Add tomatoes and spices. Mix. If it is a little thin continue to simmer and the water will boil off.
Top with cheese/beef, sour cream, salsa, lettuce.
