Macros

Serving Size: 3 mini "street" tacos
  • Protein - 21.5 g
  • Carbs - 39.5 g
  • Fat - 6.5 g

Ingredients

  • *2 servings vegan egg scramble
  • *1 cup salsa ranchera
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained, rinsed and mashed
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil or ghee
  • *6 mini "street" corn tortillas
  • toppings: avocado, tomatoes, vegan cheese, red onions

Cooking Utensils

  • 1 large non-stick skillet
  • 1 microwave safe bowl
  • 1 small saucepan

Directions

  1. Make the tofu scramble/“juevos” and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, add the salsa ranchera and bring to a simmer and let simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the salsa has reduced and is warmed through. See below for homemade recipe.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, add drained black beans, lime juice and salt. Heat black beans for 60-90 seconds until they are warmed all the way through. Option to serve whole or mashed.
  4. While salsa is simmering and black beans are warming, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add corn tortillas and pan-fry on each side for about 2 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. OR you can also just toss the corn tortillas in the microwave for 15-30 seconds.
  5. To assemble, place 3 corn tortillas on each plate. Top with refried beans, juevos, salsa ranchera, and toppings of choice. Serve immediately.

 

Homemade Salsa Ranchera:

1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained

1/4 onion, diced

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

jalapeno, seeded and diced

Directions: Add the onion and garlic to a frying pan with the olive oil and cook until onions are translucent. Combine the tomatoes, the Worcestershire sauce and the jalapeno in a blender and blend. Add the onions and garlic and stir well. Season with salt to taste

 

Recommendations:

Salsa ranchera is normally found in the “Mexican or Latin” isle. Herdez and La Costeña are the most common brands.

I used Mission mini street corn tortillas but you can also use flour or your tortilla of choice.
