It’s no secret that we are a Mexican food loving family. The word “quesadilla” entered Zachary’s vocabulary very early on, and he continues to be extremely excited on quesadilla and taco nights. Can’t say I blame him.

These tacos are obviously a bit different than your usual ones, but we all really liked them. A quick and crispy slaw gives texture and freshness to the tacos and feta cheese (as odd as I thought it when I originally started seeing/using it) is really great with Mexican fare. These tacos come together in no time. Zachary seasoned and mashed the beans on his own, and also helped me with the slaw (which, per his usual “helpfulness” included him eating most of the prep ingredients). These take just a few minutes to crisp up on the stovetop, so dinner is ready in no time.

I had put coleslaw mix on the grocery list, and Tom came back with broccoli slaw (probably because it was a smaller bag) to which I let out a groan. I’m really not the world’s biggest broccoli fan, if you haven’t noticed nearly the complete absence of it on this blog. But for some reason, I liked this slaw better than standard broccoli. I may have even liked it better than regular coleslaw mix. That said, I think these tacos would also be pretty awesome with jicama slaw, so I’ll try that next time around.
