What we love about these veggie tacos is how easy they are to make and how delicious they are! We serve them in multiple ways:
as is, or with a different protein, like chicken, beans, or even a poached or over-medium egg! Vegetarian Mexican Taco Recipe Ingredients
Avocado Oil White Onion or substitute a Red Onion Bell Peppers – We recommend using red, orange, and yellow bell peppers because they are sweeter in flavor and have more nutrients than green peppers. Garlic Clove Red cabbage – When the cabbage gets soft, it releases a mild sweetness, which balances the taco spices’ heat! Kale – We used red Russian kale in this recipe. It has a mild flavor, and when sautéed, it adds nice texture and chewiness to each bite! Seasoning: Chili powder, Cumin powder, Salt and Black Pepper Fresh Lime Juice Fresh Cilantro
Serve these vegetarian tacos with tortilla wraps, sour cream, hot sauce, or topped with our
chunky avocado salsa for extra flavor, and then add a protein. Protein Options for Tacos
Option 1: Serve with refried pinto beans.
Option 2: Serve with a poached or over-medium egg.
Option 3: Serve with grilled shrimp, tofu, or chicken, seasoned with extra taco seasoning.
