Easiest Vegetarian Tacos

Nope, that's not meat.  It's my secret weapon to the perfect vegetarian imitation of the traditional beef tacos I grew up eating.  You know, the old school ground beef with the Old El Paso taco kit, seasoning, taco shells, and sauce. Who kid didn't love taco night!? To mimic that, I take a southwest style veggie burger, crumble it up and use as the "meat".  My favorite to use is the Sunshine Burger Black Bean South West Burger.  It's completely all-natural with whole ingredients, meaning everything in it is something you could purchase to make yourself (see image below).  Other options that are good but not all whole ingredients, are the Morningstar Spicy Black Bean Burger (not vegan) and the Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle Burger.


1 south west style black bean burger, crumbled
Taco Sauce or seasoning/spices (optional)
Diced onion
Pico de gallo or regular salsa
Chopped cilantro
Guacomole or diced avocado
Cheese, regular or vegan (optional)
Shredded lettuce
2 Taco shells or tortillas


Simply heat your burger, crumble up, toss in some taco sauce or seasoning if desired. Spoon into taco shells, add your toppings and dig in.

My favorite burger

Whole, natural ingredients you can pronounce and buy at the grocery store!
