It all started when my long lost Katie friend called me last night to catch up on current events. As we were about to hang up she mentioned she was on her way to Mexican dinner, which caused an instant Urban Cantina craving on my end.
I was on a mission to find a dinner partner, but fifty percent of the calls I made went straight to voicemail. Dead phones? A sure sign that the weekend was entirely too eventful for those of us pushing thirty!
I settled on the idea of take-out, but my plan came to a screeching halt when I realized my car was still parked at Bailey’s from the night before. How did I not realize this before 7 PM??
Rather… How did I not realize this before 8 PM? Time change, doh!
A day later, my cravings were still in full effect. I secured Urban Cantina dinner plans with Robbie for Tuesday night, but… I wanted Los Frejoles tacos (sans cheese) ASAP. Patience has never been my strong suit.
I topped toasted corn tortillas with rinsed black beans, romaine lettuce, sliced avocado, and fresh(er) salsa. If salsa is in the refrigerated section and I can identify all of the ingredients at first glance – it’s fresh enough for me!
I filled them a little on the full side, they were total tostacos (tostada+taco), but tasty tostacos nonetheless. Sunday night fail, Monday night win!
