Tacos with refried beans, peach salsa and avocado

 After our guacamole on Friday we were still craving Mexican food. We went out for some Saturday errands and stopped at our local grocery store on the way home and got the ingredients for these tacos. We were so excited to find lots of delicious, local salsas to choose from at our little store. I love peach salsa so we went with that for our tacos. I'm a big fan of savory and sweet but not everyone is, so go with whatever kind of salsa you like. These would also be good with some cashew sour cream dolloped on top. We made these after our Saturday run (more on that later) and they were so wonderful!


soft taco shells
vegetarian refried beans
salsa (we used peach salsa)
sliced avocado
toppings of your choice, we used:
fresh cilantro, chopped
tomatoes, diced
onions, diced
fresh lime juice
hot sauce

1. Heat the refried beans if they're from a can.

2. Chop all the toppings and get them ready to go.

3. Heat the taco shells in the microwave. Our friend Kristi showed us how to do this- put the shells you can eat on a plate covered by a damp paper towel and heat for 20 seconds.

4. Assemble and enjoy! They are really fresh and will remind you of a warm summer evening. In fact, they would be perfect to eat outside on a warm summer evening!
