Tacos (vegetarian style)

These are very yummy and healthy tacos. Since I don't eat beef, but I love tacos, I had to invent this recipe on my own. Mark loves it. This recipe feeds 2-4 people, depending on how many beans and taco shells you use.


  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 T Cumin
  • 1 t Paprika
  • 1 t Cayenne
  • 1 t Mexican chili powder
  • 1 red capsicum (red bell pepper) chopped
  • 1 green capsicum (green bell pepper) chopped
  • 1-2 cans organic red kidney beans
  • 1 cup of taco sauce (from a jar)
  • frozen corn
  • taco shells
What you do:
  1. Add oil to a heated pan and then add the onions.
  2. After a minute or two, add the garlic and some of the spices and sauté for a bit.
  3. Add the red and green capsicums and sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Add the beans, the rest of the spices, and the taco sauce. Simmer for several (5-10) minutes. Add the corn towards the end.
  5. Meanwhile, heat up the taco shells in the oven until they are starting to turn light brown.
  6. Fill up the shells and serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole (mash up an avocado and add S&P, lemon juice, and sour cream to taste), and salsa. (you could even add some shredded lettuce and fresh tomatoes if you wish)
  7. Enjoy!! Yum!
