Kick-starting with the recipe

Once you are ready with all the above ingredients, we can start with the proceedings.

Step:-1 In a pan, take 6-7 tbsp of oil and allow it to heat for sometime. Once it gets ready, add all chopped vegetables along with red baked kidney beans and stir them for a while.


Step:-2 Add tacos seasoning, salt to taste, red chilly powder, black pepper powder to the vegetables. Also, add diced olives and jalapenos and allow it to cook for 5 minutes till all the spices blend with the vegetables.


[Note:- There is no restriction on the number of vegetables to use. You can opt for any vegetable according to your choice. It will make your dish tastier than ever.]


Step:-3 Once the filling is ready, take a tortilla sheet and use one or two spoons of the prepared fillings as per your size of the sheet.


[Note:- If you don’t have readymade tortilla sheets, you can make a similar one by using all-purpose flour along with a pinch of salt and water as a binding agent. Make thick round circular sheets of the dough preparation and cook them slightly and tada! Homemade tortillas are ready to use]


Step:-4 Sprinkle the cheese from the top, wrap the sheet from the sides as shown in the picture below and shallow fry the tortillas in a pan. You can also cook them in the oven if you avoid consuming oily food. Once the tortillas turn into golden brown color, they are ready to serve.


Step:-5 Garnish them with coriander leaves and serve them along with salsa sauce or red bean curry and tomato sauce as per your wish and enjoy it with your family and friends! Nom nom.
