Guacadillas and Tacos

Mm. Hispanic food.

Okay seriously, I've been to Central America twice, and my aunt is from Mexico. Their idea of hispanic food is very different from ours. But hey, if it tastes good, eat it, right?

I used to scoff at the idea of a vegan quesadilla. Oxymoron much? Then I caved and made my very first guacamole-stuffed corn tortilla, and that was that. This baby was packed with flavour and great nutrition. I threw in a few black (turtle) beans and some chopped veggies to give it a bit more substance.

Of course, if you're going to cook beans, you might as well cook a lot. Since I had a full pack of corn tortillas to eat through, I could think of no better way than to make "turtle" tacos. I reheated the beans in a saucepan with some tomato and zucchini, then through in a few spices (cumin, marjoram, garlic powder, and chili powder, to be exact). Scrumptious!
