I totally forgot how amazing the Bernie Mac Show was. Let me back up. A friend came to visit me last weekend and we got to talking about all the shows we used to watch as kids. Shows like Dinosaurs (Go Jim Henson), anything SNICK, Rocko’s Modern Life, and somehow I started singing the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. Seems there are a lot of shows that I miss watching. SO, in all the nostalgia, we realized we could search Netflix . . . and guess what we found… Bernie Mac! Okay, believe me, it’s funny. Good wholesome family entertainment. The other night I started watching where we left off and I can’t stop watching. I will be seriously sad when I finish the series, I can already tell. Luckily, I’ve learned that Dinosaurs is on Netflix as well.
Anyway, this post was not supposed to be about TV, it was about my taco dinner I made.
Black Bean Tacos
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 Roma tomatos, diced
1/2 a green pepper, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
Shredded cheddar cheese
Heat up a skillet with some olive oil. Add onions and pepper, cook through. Add the black beans and spices. Cook on medium heat for 8 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water to hot pan, stir to combine and cook for another 5 minutes or until water has been absorbed by beans.
Heated the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds, added a bit of cheese, diced tomatoes, and some of the beans. The result? A delicious, healthy meal that I loved!! And to think I almost always have chicken or beef tacos. Meat free can be good. Who would have thought?
