Often we speak about nostalgia and food together; Certain foods, we find, are very nostalgic for their taste, and for the memories associated with them—the time, the place, the aromas, the people. One such food for our familia is a taco that reminds us of Laredo (some might say it’s the most beloved taco in all of Laredo): The Pirata Taco. Served from our favorite taco joint, lines of people gathered and trailed out the door awaiting authentic, hearty, Mexican cuisine. Sometimes there were “buy one get one” coupons for Pirata Tacos and people would carry them around like they were gold. This recipe is our tribute to a fajita taco that is traditionally made with refried beans and cheddar cheese on a flour tortilla. Using our cashew queso, sprouted bean dip, and almond flour tortilla, we’ve brought new ingredients to this historic taco. Share with all the people who are worth their weight in gold and nostalgia.Author: Siete Family Foods
