Tacos with Greens and Beans

Tacos with Geens and Beans

These tacos are a hit for their versatility as much as their taste. They can really work with whatever greens and beans you may have on hand. For the greens, you can use spinach, kale, chard, or any other leafy green vegetable available. For the beans, substitute cannellini beans with pinto, kidney, or even chickpeas. The combination below is my favourite, but experiment away and come up with your own!

These tacos are best when eaten fresh. The greens and beans mixture can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. To reheat, simply place it into a pan and heat over medium heat, until warm.
