Veggie Tacos

5 ml (1 tsp) canola oil

125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped onion

125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped green bell pepper

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 pkg (340 g) Mexican veggie ground round

250 ml (1 cup) shredded lettuce

250 ml (1 cup) grated cheddar cheese

250 ml (1 cup) fresh tomatoes, chopped

250 ml (1 cup) refried beans, heated

125 ml (1/2 cup) salsa

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat oil. Add onion, green pepper and garlic and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.

Mash ground round with fork and add to mixture in skillet. Heat through. (Do not overcook since veggie ground round is precooked.)

Spoon 50 ml (1/4 cup) of the filling into each taco shell. Serve with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, refried beans and salsa separately as garnishes.

Makes 4 servings.
