Vegan Taco Bowl

This is what happens when I feel super lazy – pantry taco bowl dinner! Just open a few cans toast a tortilla and voila dinner!

  • 1 can pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 4oz can green chilies
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
  • Vegan cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Sliced black olives
  • Vegan ranch dressing
  • Salsa
  • 1 head romaine chopped
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray an oven proof bowl and place tortilla inside creating a bowl, spray with a little olive oil and bake 5 – 8 min – keep an eye on it, they go from yum to burnt quick!
  • In a medium pan, dump beans, chilies and tomatoes with juice and cook over medium heat for 20 min until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Place romaine in the bottom, drizzle with ranch and salad, top with beans, avocado, cheese, more salsa and olives.
  • Serves 4.
