Rice and Bean Taquitos

First I apologize I don't have a more epic picture. But my co-workers (not even vegan) devoured these things.

My Co-Worker (Mmm Pie!) and I had to work a late graveyard inventory shift (more like a 12 hour shift one asked, lol). We were able to convince our boss to allow us to dip in to the work party fund for snacks... not just snacks... VEGAN FOOD!

We decided to make vegan taquitos after seeing our other friend (thesnarkychickpea) post them on her blog.

Only we twisted up the recipe a bit..

These are so delicious.

Be warned.

Also, I didn't get great pictures because I didn't make these at my house and we were kinda rushing to make them. I apologize this won't be like my typical posts.

  1. These look SO good! I'm definitely going to try this.
    I actually just stumbled upon your blog looking at other bloggers who follow Amanda Eats. (I know it sounds creepy, but I want to follow more Salt Lake vegan bloggers.) But it gets creepier, I just wrote a post about you regarding the injustice of your case with the grand jury and FBI scare tactics. Feel free to check out my blog if you'd like, and I hope you are doing well considering the fuckery you had to go through.

  2. Oh man! I so want to try these with some rice inside. What a great idea! And you're welcome for the recipe :)
    Have a great night.

  3. @lyssy thanks. No worries I'm not creeped out. I'd love to see your pos, but I couldn't find it on your blog. :)
