Huevos con frijoles

I stopped by Circle K the other day for my morning taco. Normally, I will have their Q Taco or chicharron con chile taco. I saw that one of their pans had huevos con frijoles, egg and beans. That took me back to the days when my family and I worked in the fields. Those were our breakfast and lunch tacos. We worked in the onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage, orange, grapefruit, and lemon amongst other things. When we were saving up money and simply trying to survive, Mom would make tacos with egg and beans. They don't taste bad. They are actually rather tasty. Even when they are cold, these are good tacos. My mom would wake up at 6 AM and start making our tacos for the day. They were always alternately stacked on a square of aluminum foil with a paper towel. She would make a few packs of tacos to last us through the day. We did this in Hereford, Tx; Wautoma, Wild Rose, Waupaca, and Berlin, WI; and here in the Rio Grande Valley. Eating a bean and egg taco brought back some nice memories. I like ethnic food.
