9 Layer Soft Taco

You know what's in season now? Avocados. MMMMMmmmmm! When avocados start appearing on more and more store shelves I start getting more and more in the mood for mexican dishes. Tacos, Burritos, Quesadillas, Tomales, Oh My! Such delicious, simple and inexpensive ingredients. And so versatile too! If you only  have tortillas, beans and cheese in the house, you can have a burrito. If you only have shells, leftover chicken and salsa, you can have tacos.

Fortunately there's no skimping in this recipe. My pantry has all the makings of 9 Layer Soft Taco! This baby is a beast! Just look at it! It's stuffed to the brim with everything you could want in your taco. It's making me hungry again just looking at it! There are more layers here than levels in ICC! This awesome soft taco will sate those mexi-food cravings you've been least until the next time you see an avocado.
