Baking your tacos with the bean filling both heats them up and softens the bottom of the taco so they don’t crumble apart when you eat them!

Corn and beans have a long history together! Both are native to the Americas. These crops originated in Mexico and made their way north to what is now the United States thousands of years ago. Native Americans would plant corn and beans along with winter squash and the plants would help each other grow. So perhaps it’s not a coincidence that these foods are also very nutritious and taste great together, too!

What helps you grow? Is it food, your family, what you’re learning in school? Maybe it’s lots of things!
