Tacos with bean filling

     This a lovely Mexican dish which reminds me of our very own chaat to me.It has this crunchy touch with spicy filling which satisfies all the senses.My friend Hetal , once on one of our outings to downtown showed me the taco shells she uses.I picked it up and made them last week.It was a super hit.I had tried making the shell before, but now since they are readily available, the quick snack is great to make. It has the goodness of beans and lots of salad too.
