10-12 corn tortillas
1 can of refried beans
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced & divided in half
1/2 cup black beans
Cayenne, garlic powder, salt & pepper, any other spices you'd like (all to taste)
1/2 packet of taco seasoning for the refried beans (or make your own with 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tbsp chili powder, 1 tbsp paprika)
1 mango, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1 cup of cole slaw mix (shredded green & purple cabbage and carrots)
Shredded vegan cheddar or American cheese
Prep all your ingredients by dicing/chopping the first 3 veggies in the list above (zucchini, onion, pepper).
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan on med-high heat.
Add in the diced zucchini, white onion, and 1/2 of the red bell pepper.
When the veggies begin to get soft, add in the black beans.
Season with spices (cayenne, garlic powder, salt, pepper).
Meanwhile, scoop the can of refried beans into a microwavable bowl. Heat for 1-2 minutes until warm and creamy. Mix with the taco seasoning.
Continue to dice the rest of your veggies and place in individual bowls/dishes for serving.
When the cooked veggies are done, begin heating your corn tortillas.
Heat another frying pan on medium heat, and place 1-2 corn tortillas in the dry pan. Heat both sides until warm.
Now, you can assemble your tacos however you'd like. We did: ○ Tortilla > refried beans > cheese > sauteed veggies > all of the toppings.
