Tex Mex Veggie Tacos 


Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated, especially during these spring/summer nights. Time spent socializing with family and friends is way more important and these tacos are perfect for sharing!


This is a lighter version of the traditional ground beef or chicken filled tacos. Instead it brings a satisfying bite with the use of black beans and sweet potatoes. This lightened up version is perfect for the summer months and hot heat – it satisfies cravings without weighing you down.


These tacos bring the flavour of Tex mex cooking while providing an abundance of vitamins and minerals. Sweet potatoes contain vibrant flavonoids and B vitamins while the bell peppers contain powerful cancer fighting antioxidants, and black beans provide fiber and protein.
