It may not be Tuesday, but we today we are making tacos – because Taco Thursday should be a thing. Tacos are definitely a staple in my house and something I could eat every night of the week.

These tacos are one of my favorites to make later in the week when I have just a few ingredients left in my fridge that I am trying to use up.

Because even though there aren’t a lot of ingredients in this recipe, the combination of everything together makes for one tasty taco.

To make the base of these tacos, you are going to sauté some red onion and jalapeño in a pan with canned white beans and your favorite salsa.

TSV TIP: I have been OBSESSED with the Trader Joe’s Pepita Salsa lately and that is what I used in this recipe. It is in no way traditional, but it is super tasty!

And I know lots of you are going to have some of my Jalapeño Cilantro Sauce leftover in your fridge already. I shared this recipe a couple weeks ago, and you have all been telling me how much you love it. If you don’t have any leftover, don’t worry, it only takes a few minutes to whip up.
