I'll start with the salsa

1 Can diced tomatoes with green chilies (how much *heat* you want depends on you

1 lime, juiced

1/4 - 1/3 cup loosely packed cilantro

1 clove garlic, chopped (I use about a tsp of the garlic in the jar)

salt to taste

I put all of the ingredients in a blender and pulse several times until everything is chopped and blended. I usually double this, so if you like your salsa more chunky, then leave one can of tomatoes out of the blender.

VEGETARIAN TACOS

3 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup julienned sweet red pepper
2 TBS oil
2 tsp sugar (or you can substitute stevia)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup salsa
1 can chopped green chilis
1 tsp (more or less) chili powder
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp ground cumin

favorite taco toppings...chopped tomaotes, avacados, salsa, etc
Taco Shells

In a large skillet, saute cabbage, onion and red pepper in oil for 5 minutes or until crisp tender. Sprinkle with sugar (I sometimes omit this and haven't noticed a difference)

Stir in the beans, salsa, chilies, chili powder, cumin and garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat: cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through. Spoon into taco shells and top with your favorite toppings.

MEXICAN RICE

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 TBS butter/oil
2 cups instant rice (I use brown)
1 can diced tomatoes with mild green chilis, undrained - I like to puree mine in the blender
1 cup water
3/4 cup beef broth (or use water or vegetable broth)
1/2 tsp chili powder (MOL)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp ground cumin
(And I always add a little garlic! :D )
2 TBS minced fresh cilantro

In a large saucepan, saute onion in butter/oil for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add rice; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.

Stir in the tomatoes, water, broth, chili powder, salt sugar and cumin. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro.

This makes such a yummy meal, and it's easy and quick! :D

You make your spanish rice the way I do. Taste better with Brown rice.

I'll have to add cabbage to our tacos, I make what I call meatless fajitas. I cut green, red and yellow peppers into strips and julienne carrots and slice onions then 'grill' them on a dry skillet with cumin seed and crushed oregano and roasted garlic. One you add salsa and shredded lettuce and spinach leaves everyone forgets they have no meat.

Your rice recipe should be relabeled Mexican Rice, the Spanish do not use green chilis or chili powder. I'll share my recipe for Spanish rice.
