Black Bean and Corn Tacos Recipe

We eat meatless meals a few times a week, so I replaced the beef with nutty brown rice to bulk up these tacos. I also like to swap rice for quinoa. —Kristin Rimkus, Snohomish, Washington

"Although I modified this recipe a bit, I am still giving this version five stars. Instead of tomatoes, I used salsa and adjusted the seasoning accordingly. I was surprised that the cabbage worked so well in this dish. It assumed the flavor of the seasonings, so it wasn't overwhelming. We enjoyed this dish, and I plan to make it again."
