Veggie Tacos Recipe
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.)
