  • can opener
  • spoon
  • plate


  • ½-3/4 cup refried beans
  • ½-3/4 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 1-2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 taco sized tortillas corn or flour
  • ¼-1/2 cup salsa
  • ¾-1 cup sliced cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro leaves
  • 1 whole lime quartered


  • Add ½-3/4 cup refried beans to microwave safe bowl, mix in ½-3/4 teaspoon taco seasoning. Top with shredded cheddar cheese. Microwave until cheese melts, in 30 second increments.
  • Divide beans between 2-3 taco sized tortillas, top with salsa, cabbage/vegetables, cilantro leaves, and any additional toppings. Serve with lime wedges.



  • I recommend using about ¼ cup of beans per tortilla, so if you'd like 2 tacos, heat up ½ cup refried beans. Heat up ¾ cup for 3 tortillas.
  • Use ¼ teaspoon taco seasoning per ¼ cup of beans. (½ teaspoon for ½ cup beans, and ¾ teaspoon for ¾ cup beans)
  • Just use whatever vegetables you have on hand, cabbage, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, radishes are a few examples.
  • No need to measure out ingredients, just use a spoon to spoon each ingredient on the tortilla and eat with a fork if it's too big to eat with your hands.
