Swedish tacos

Swedish what? That doesn’t even make sense!

You’d be surprised. Visit any Swedish supermarket and you’ll find an entire shelf filled with tortillas, salsa, nachos, and so on – all the things you need for Taco Friday; a holy day in our calendar.

  • 100 g Black beans
  • 1 dl (1/2 cup) Water
  • 4 Tortillas
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Lemon
  • Salt, pepper, fajita/burrito spice
Swedish tacos


  1. Fry the minced mock meat together with the beans and season to flavor. Once it has browned a little, add the water and let it boil away. You’ll want a sticky (protein loaded) substance.
  2. Chop up the veggies finely and put in small, individual bowls.
  3. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed and peel, and mash its meat to a pulp. Add some salt and squeeze a little lemon juice over it before mixing to a healthy guacamole. Some people add finely cut onion to their guacamole and it’s a nice touch but I’m usually too impatient to eat at this stage.
  4. Heat the tortillas in the microwave.
  5. All ingredients goes on the table. Put a tortilla on your plate, add some guacamole, lots of “meat”, sprinkle with the veggies you want, wrap it all up, and eat.

You decide what you want on your tacos (fajitas, really) and the ingredients can vary a lot. One of my brothers likes adding banana to his and another likes canned corn. And this is the beauty – you simply mix all the weird things you like and it’s totally acceptable.

Because it’s Taco Friday.
