Simple Bean Tacos

Makes 8 tacos

These soft-shell tacos are a quick and easy snack or meal. Several companies make vegetarian refried beans. Look for them in natural food stores and many supermarkets.

1 15-ounce can vegetarian refried beans
8 corn tortillas
1/2 - 1 cup Salsa Fresca or commercial salsa
2 cups pre-washed salad mix
3 green onions, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped

Heat beans on the stove or in a microwave.

Spread a tortilla with about 1/4 cup of beans, and lay it flat in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. When tortilla is warm and pliable, fold it in half and cook each side 1 minute. Garnish with salsa, salad mix, green onions, and tomatoes.
