Bento #9

I know I’ve been kind of lazy about the bentos lately, but I’m going to get back on track soon! Here’s the bento I made for work today. On the right there’s brown rice and corn on the cob, on the left there’s a fortune cookie, cherries, and some spiced potatoes.



Papas Rancheros

There’s a restaurant near my apartment in San Antonio that was named “The Best Tacos in America” by the Food Network. It’s called Taco Taco. They have a couple tacos that I can have there, including the papas rancheros tacos that I normally get. The other day I decided to try out making my own papas rancheros tacos and they turned out pretty good and tasted very similar to Taco Taco’s. Here’s a picture of one of the tacos.

1 medium sized potato
1 medium sized tomato
1/2 jalapeño
1/2 small onion
salt and pepper to taste

Wash the potato and poke it a few times with fork. Cook in the microwave for 5 minutes or until done. While it’s cooking, dice the tomato, jalapeño, and onion. Once the potato has cooled some, carefully peel it and chop it into big chunks. Heat up a medium sized skillet, spray with cooking spray and add potato, onion, and jalapeño. Once they have cooked a bit, add tomato and salt and pepper to taste. Once potato is browned and onion is cooked, warm up a tortilla and add the potato mixture. Enjoy!
