Whole Grain Meatless Taco Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

I modified this from a recipe in the Costco magazine. The original called for quinoa but that was $11/lb. The recipe also called for serving this on a bed of baby spinach with cheese and avocado.

I was so intrigued by this recipe that I had to try it and I'm glad I did - it's terrific! I used yellow onion instead of red, and canned rotel tomatoes with chilis for the tomato. I stirred the cooked bulgar into the bean mixture until it was well-mixed in and then served it warm over lettuce, topped with a little shredded cheese and sour cream. It made a great hearty taco salad; I could see this mixture being used in a taco or burrito too. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
