How to Make Vegetarian Tacos

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add all of the veggies and cook until the vegetables are softened, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Stir in the cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, oregano, and a little bit of water. The water will help everything come together.
  • Carefully stir in the black beans, making sure you don’t smash them. Add the lime juice and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Now, it’s time to assemble the tacos! Place the filling in the center of warm corn tortillas and top with desired toppings!

  1. These look great! I’m excited to try them as I begin a “wellness journey” next week. How many tacos per serving?

    1. 5 stars
      I wanted to report back after having made these tacos on Day 1 of my “wellness journey.” They were so tasty and satisfying. The blend of flavors and seasonings was perfect. I halved the recipe as I was the only one eating them. I used 1/2 of my tortilla mixture over 2 warmed corn tortillas. I topped each with a little Queso fresco and several slices of fresh avocado. I have refrigerated the remaining taco mixture and am hopeful that it will be delicious as leftovers. Thank you for a healthy, filling recipe. I loved using the zucchini since it is in season now, but am curious as to what other vegetables you might suggest in place of it when I make it this fall. Butternut squash?

    2. I am so glad you loved the tacos! You can use any veggies! Broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, etc. I do have a butternut squash taco recipe on the blog and a few other vegetarian taco recipes! Check them out!
