{October 14, 2010}   Taco Bento Step by Step

Another step by step blog. Start to finish, including getting everything out, clean up AND photos, this took aabout 15 minutes.

Get all the food out of the fridge.

Get your tools and box ready.

Line one side of the larger tier with lettuce. This is optional, but I think it looks prettier if you do it.

Add the rice. I’m using leftover Basmati rice here, but you could use whatever you have.

Yellow squash for a baran (divider). The yellow adds a bit of color to the box.

Fill the rest of the box with taco meat. Again, this is all dinner leftovers.

Cherry tomatoes for filler and a sprinkling of paprika on the rice for color.

And we move on to the top tier. A silicone cup filled with a corn and chayote saute. Seasoned lightly with chili powder.

Some lettuce for color and texture.

Sweet bell pepper slices.

A couple of radishes for color.

Gotta fill in all those gaps! Snow peas to the rescue.

Hmmm… needs a little something more. Cilantro garnish and we’re done! Black plum for dessert/snack.

We just had tacos tonight and there IS leftover ground turkey. Hmmm…I may just have to make my own “taco” lunch tomorrow!
