Toco Mayhem

Things were crazy last week. We had 172 people, but everybody got fed. Thanks for being patient as I assembled the tacos: perfection takes time. Here are the recipes for this week. Look forward to a hot bowl of vegetable soup next Thursday.

I am tasty tacos
Two cups dried pinto beans
2 bay leaves
1 sliced onion
1 clove garlic minced

Boil the bay leaf and beans for about 45 minutes in enough water to cover the beans. Add the other ingredients and simmer until the beans are very soft. Next pour off some of the liquid into a bowl. Mash or puree the beans to a smooth consistency. Add the liquid as needed to make the beans creamy.
