Last time, I made a salad in a jar. It was yummy. I love tacos, so I thought this week would be a great time to try this in a jar. It was really easy to make, and should last a few days. I am only packing for a few days because the boyfriend is in town and I usually never have time to eat my left overs. Boo.
For the salsa, here’s the recipe.
Easy Taco in a Jar
- 1 glove garlic
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 tomatoes or 3 if you prefer
- fresh cilantro
- 1/2 lime or lemon
- Crush garlic and place in bowl.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and leave in the fridge for an hour for the flavors to mesh.
While I made the salsa, I started the rice in the rice cooker, and made the fillings on the stove. I used some fake beef crumbles and some black beans. I use taco seasonings like cumin/paprika/garlic salt along with some herbs.
After the salsa set long enough, I added it to the jars.
After adding the salsa, I added the filling and the lettuce and finally the rice. I read that you should put the lightest ingredients on top.
Very simple and very tasty.
