Leftovers... Taco Stir-fry

taco-stir-fry.JPG

 I love homemade leftovers!  I especially love that leftovers take only minutes to whip up and generally have more flavour (the spices have time to really soak into the food.)  I recently posted a yummy dish from some leftover bean tacos, and I had many people asking about the recipe so I decided to share.  It is one of the easiest recipes I make and a top favourite.  On round one, I ate the taco mixture with lettuce wraps while my boyfriend ate it with sprouted whole wheat wraps with mustard.  On round two (the night of left overs), I heated the taco beans and peppers in a pan with handfuls of spinach.  Both nights were delicious but if I had to pick, it would be leftovers for sure!

For the taco powder, I generally use my own spice mixture, however, when I'm all out I use an organic mixture from simply organics.  I find that this brand uses more quality ingredients than the typical taco powder, and more nutrients is always my goal!  Here's the recipe and I hope you all enjoy!
