From Taco Night to Taco Salad

I assume by now you've seen the awesomeness that is the Taco Cleanse? It is, without a doubt, the best sounding, most sensible, easiest to follow dietary cleanse there is. I frequently think that I could in fact eat tacos every single day and never get sick of them - there's so much greatness that goes well in taco form.

About a week or two ago, I was trying to think of another item to go with dinner when I found some cooked black beans in the fridge. I realize that my favorite bean recipes come from Terry's Viva Vegan so I used the black beans to make a tiny bit of the refried beans recipe, and the picky bean hating kid loved them.

Last night I remade the refried beans the correct way using the whole recipe, and they were amazing, and tacos for dinner are always a win.

Today I used the ingredients to make a salad, and I used the refried beans as the dressing - something moist to join the ingredients together. Super yummy, of course.

Here are some chickpea tacos I made a few weeks - months? - ago. I used the Peas and Thank You recipe. So good.

And my most eaten taco, the leftover scramble taco. I usually use some vegenaise and sriracha, but these had avocado.

Randi, my pleasure! Even the kiddo likes these and she's picky about beans.

Lindsay, they're great! Just put some cold scramble in there.

Ooh, I love tacos...AND taco salad! These all look great!

Surprisingly enough, I don't think I've ever made tacos with chickpeas though! Will have to amend that!
