**If you need more calories, pairing this with a few corn tortillas to make little potato kidney bean tacos is a great option. We ate it for dinner this way the other night.
Potatoes. 1 large potato is enough carb for two meals so calculate how many potatoes you need to buy based off how many meals you plan to prep.
1 can of coconut milk. This should be enough for even a large batch of mashed potatoes. I use 1/4 cup of coconut milk per one potato ratio, but you can adjust this to your own liking.
Canned Kidney Beans. 1 can is enough beans for two meals so buy enough cans for how many meals you plan to prep.
Bell Peppers. 1 bell pepper per meal so buy based on how many meals you plan to prep
2-3 limes or lime juice already bottled
1 Red onion
Canned Pickled Jalapenos
Cilantro and Avocado to garnish-optional I know these are pricey & they aren't necessary for the recipe. But if you can afford they add more flavor and nutrients.
