When Nithu asked us about our cooking experiences in the kitchen working together, we were excited that we would actually be with each other after a very long time and also be able to do a lot of cooking together. When my sister visited us, the first thing S asked her was to make tacos for him after he heard of the success stories back at her home. So, the very next day, he bought all the stuff necessary and patiently waited for the end product to be delivered on the table. We all fell in love with it instantly and we plan to make it a regular at home for dinner. The beauty of this is that it can be customized as per individual preference. Here is how we enjoyed..

Ingredients - 

Taco shells 16 nos
Red Kidney Beans (Rajma) 1 1/2  cups
Taco Seasoning mix 1.5 sachets (or as needed)
Taco Sauce or Salsa 1 cup (or as needed)
Lettuce shredded 1.5 cup (or as needed)
Green Bell Pepper 1/2 cup (or as needed)
Red Bell Pepper 1/2 cup (or as needed)
Tomatoes 1 cup (or as needed)
Onions 1/2 cup (or as needed)
Cheese grated 1/2 cup (or as needed)
Sour Cream 1/2 cup (or as needed)
Salt and Red Chilli Powder as per taste

Method Of Preparation - 

Soak Rajma (red kidney beans) over nite and wash and pressure cook them. If you are anything like me, Pretreat the Rajma to avoid flatulence.

In a heated sauce pan, get the rajma boiling and add the taco seasoning mix. Adjust salt and chilli powder as per taste. (Take care not to add salt to Rajma prior to this as the taco seasoning mix has a lot of salt already added!). 

Mix well so there are no lumps of the seasoning and mash the beans slightly so they get all mushy and let the mixture thicken. 

Chop all the veggies Lettuce, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, and arrange them in different bowls. 

Also have grated cheese , Taco sauce , and sour cream handy.

In a microwave safe  bowl, spread the taco shells and nuke it for about 40 secs (so they become a little crispy).

Take each taco shell, fill in with the rajma mixture, and then with all the veggies, layering them along with cheese, taco sauce and sour cream.

Prepare each taco shell as per individual preference. 

I liked it when we mixed all the ingredients and quickly filled in the taco shells and gulped them down!
