Tomatillo salsa and tacos

Some home-grown tomatillos, courtesy of the Preston’s, inspired tonight’s meal.  Renata made a salsa, and we threw together some tacos.  They were delicious.  I should really be writing a fellowship application right now, so I won’t go into too much detail, but here are some pictures and an idea of what we made.

Black beans, onions, garlic

We used this as a taco filling.  Saute the onions and garlic in olive oil.  When they are softer add the beans, and salt and pepper.  30 seconds before removing from heat, add cumin.
