Flavorful & Nourishing!
After a weekend of indulgent eating, it’s back to basics with these one-pan Veggie Bean Tacos. Carrots, mushrooms, squash, red pepper, black beans and corn all sautéed in a Mexican spice blend and topped with avocado, cilantro and a sour cream-lime drizzle.
Packed with flavor and nutrients, this has been a go to meal of ours for years. We love that it can be made ahead and heated up and we love that the veggie bean mix works equally well with tacos, quesadillas or burritos. It is one of those meals that is highly adaptable too… you can substitute vegetables based on tastes and availability and use an already made taco seasoning or the spice blend blend below.
