The last thing you thing of as meatless is a taco right? I had never considered a meatless taco until one year during Lent I purchased some vegetarian tacos and all they did was add beans instead of meat. Yeah, that was it. Thanks to Kellogg’s brand MorningStar Farm Products, vegetarian tacos aren’t so bland anymore! Using the MorningStar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers your tacos will always be meatless and delicious!

Prep Time: 30 min
Total Time: 30 min
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup chopped and seeded plum tomato
- 1/2 cup chopped avocado
- 4 teaspoons lime juice
- 1/3 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
- 2 Morningstar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers
- 4 (6-inch) corn tortillas
- 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (1 oz.)
- 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1. In large nonstick skillet heat oil. Stir in onion. Cook over medium-low heat about 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet.
2. Meanwhile, prepare avocado salsa. In small bowl toss together tomato, avocado, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro and lime juice. Set aside.
3. Prepare cilantro sauce, in another small bowl stir together yogurt and the remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
4. Cook MORNINGSTAR FARMS Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers according to package directions. Cut into bite-size pieces.
5. On microwave-safe plate place 2 of the corn tortillas. Top with half of the cheese. Microwave on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until cheese melts. Top with half of the burger pieces, half of the onions, half of the salsa and half of the cilantro sauce. Repeat with remaining ingredients. (Or, place all 4 tortillas on baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° F for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with burger pieces, onions, salsa and cilantro sauce.) Transfer to 4 serving plates.
Using a corn tortilla definitely changes the taste and texture of a taco. If you can’t get into corn tortillas you can always substitute for a flour. You can pick those up at the commissary too! Just make sure to warm the tortillas up! If you don’t have a griddle you can always use a pan and warm them up in there.
