Cheap, Fast Mexican

The Chef: Colleen and Taqueria Cancun

The Menu: Black beans, Spanish rice, sliced avocado, warm tortillas, chips, and fresh-squeezed carrot juice

The Dish: After a long morning meeting (hurray for the 2012 story lineup!), I ran out of time to prepare lunch. So I hopped over a block to my favorite taqueria, Taqueria Cancun, for a side of rice and beans ($3.50, serves two) and a glass of delicious carrot juice. And voila! A fairly healthy meal in 10 minutes for less than $5. The Mission is full of these hole-in-the-wall eateries where one can eat cheap—and fast. And that comes in very handy on days like today. We've got a lot happening around the VNHQ this week, from our 2012 story meeting to the Veggie Awards (don't forget to vote!) to the launching of our first-ever VegNews Street Team next Monday (street team members are receiving their official Welcome Packs this week). So much to do, so little time. Taqueria Cancun, you saved me!
