The following post was originally posted on one of Bridget Eileen’s old blogs: In the Pines, Neophyte Poetics, Bridget Eileen’s Commonplace Book, Dreaming Bridge Designs or A Vegetarian Notebook. They aren’t all fancy with photos and subheadings and search descriptions, or even that much content, sometimes. They’re here for posterity, because it’s fun to read the archives!

Repost : Taco Dinner Kit Gone Vegan
Probably something down low on the ingredient list is not vegan, but for the most part, I made a vegan dinner toinhgt using Old El Paso's soft taco dinner kit.
Old El Paso Soft Taco Dinner Kit
one can of black beans, drained
one can of corn, drained
tabasco sauce
tomato juice
chopped onion (optional)
shredded cheese, soy or good (optional)
One packet of Minute Brown Rice
set oven to 350
Mix salsa packet, 1/2 c. of tomato juice, tabasco sauce (to taste), corn and black beans and sautee until the tomatoey stuff bubbles, stirring occasional, remove from heat
On a cookie sheet, scoop out about 2-3 tbs of black bean mixture onto half flour tortilla, add some chopped onion and about 1 heaping tsp. of shredded cheese. Fold the other half of the tortilla on top. Fit about five tortillas per cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes in oven.
Cook rice as directed, drain, return to empty sauce pan, add seasoning mix, 1/2 c. of tomato juice, stir, cover until ready to serve.
