Mexican bean tacos with pico di gallo

Love Mexican food?  If yes, then you need these tacos in your life!!

Mexican food has got to be my favourite! Nachos, Guacamole, Enchiladas, Tacos, Tostadas, name it and I love it! Also I think Pico di gallo which is a Mexican salsa is one of the most delicious relish ever. Its made with chopped tomatoes, onion, lots of coriander, chilli, salt and lemon juice. Its spicy, rustic and tangy all at the same time. Pairs really well with tacos,nachos,toasts, chips!

Getting back to this taco, its filled with the most delicious re-fried kidney beans and pico de gallo. Since I love feta cheese, I finished the tacos with it.You can go for the classic option sour cream too and even add guacamole or sliced avocados.

Re-fried beans which are used in most of the mexican recipes can be easily prepared at home. Its called re-fried beans because after boiling they are again cooked with tomato and onion to make it more flavourful. These re-fried beans will be great atop nachos and go as filling in enchiladas and tostadas.

I am a big fan of quick to prepare lunch recipes especially the ones which are packed with flavour and are super delicious. Speaking of flavour, in-case you haven't tried Soba noddle salad with spicy asian vinaigrette yet then you must try it. Also protein packed Paneer Schezwan frankie is a flavour bomb. I have it at-least twice a week.

Hearty, flavourful, satisfying, spicy and super yuummyyyy Mexican bean tacos with pico da gallo.
