These tacos are really easy to make and only require one pan for cooking. The thing that takes the longest is prepping the vegetables... and even that only takes about 5-10 minutes! All in all I had lunch prepped and cooked within 30 minutes.



1 tomato, chopped1 jalapeño, seeded and minced2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped2 chives, chopped1 lime, juiced


  1. In a small bowl, combine the tomato, jalapeño, cilantro, chives, lime juice and salt & pepper to taste. Set aside to marry.


Taco Filling

1 Tbsp light butter
1 small white onion (about 1 cup), diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
15 oz cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
6 cup baby spinach
salt and pepper, to taste
⅓ cup queso fresco, crumbled
6 white whole wheat tortillas (I used La Tortilla Factory Mini Soft Wraps. 50 cal. each.)


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium - medium-high heat and add in the onion. Sauté for a few minutes to cook through.
  2. Once the onions are starting to turn translucent, add in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute until lightly browning.
  3. Stir the beans into the pan and cook for a minute or two.
  4. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Finally add in the spinach and allow to cook until starting to wilt and the beans are completely heated.
  6. Warm the tortillas and top each with 1/3 c. of the spinach and beans, followed by about 3 tbsp. of the pico and a sprinkling of  1 tbsp. queso fresco.
  7. Serve warm right away and enjoy!
