Veggie Tacos

I made up this recipe while I was lying in shavasana after a hot yoga class. I really should have been meditating but was instead thinking of how I could throw together a healthy and delicious but super-fast dinner that would satisfy my craving for refried beans. Given that it took under 10 minutes, I was blown away by how good it was. It really hits the spot and is so delicious and filling!
