 Here is an excellent veggie taco filling that will keep everyone happy: From
 Burgers 'N Fries 'N Cinnamon Buns by Bobbie Hinman:    
                   Taco Filling                              
 1 c water                                                   
 1/2 c bulgur                                                
 1/2 c chopped onions                                        
 1/2 c chopped green peppers                                 
 1 8 oz can tomato sauce                                     
 1 1 lb can kidney beans, rinsed and drained                 
 2 tsp chili powder (I use more)                             
 1 tsp cumin (I use more)                                    
 1/4 tsp garlic powder (I use fresh garlic)                  
 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper                                      
   Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add bulgur.     Cover, reduce
 heat to low and simmer 15 minutes til water   
 has been absorbed.                                          
   While bulgur is cooking, heat oil in a large nonstick     
 skillet over medium heat. Add onions and green pepper. Cook 
 til tender, about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, beans, spices
 and cooked bulgur. Mix well, mashing beans with a fork.     
 Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 5 minutes.               
   Serve in tortillas or over tossed salad to make taco salad
 I also put crushed tortilla chips, sliced black olives,     
 cheese and salsa on the taco salad.     
   Note:  Original recipe called for 2 tsp veg. oil - great without, of
