Our Test Kitchen stuffed these yummy Vegetarian Tacos with a blend of sauteed cabbage, peppers and black beans so flavorful and filling you won’t even miss the meat! Let the kids top their own with avocado (aguacate), cheese (queso)—or a dollop of sour cream (crema agria). (And if they’re taking Spanish in school, you might even let the them print out a Spanish label for each garnish.)

"Very tasty! Super quick and easy, too.

We had whole wheat tortillas, so just warmed them and made soft tacos. Nice crunchy-ish filling with the cabbage.
Will definitely make often!"

"I had no idea what to expect. We usually eat salad with taco hot sauce and some seasoning as "vegetarian tacos". These were far better and really much better than I ever imagined! Will definitely be making these again."
