Taco night never looked so good, so quick, and so healthy. And these bad boys are completely vegetarian (perfect for Meatless Monday). I promise though, you won’t even miss the meat here.

With riced cauliflower, these come together in a flash with a few pantry staples – garlic, chipotle chili pepper, cumin and oregano. Not to mention the most amazing avocado crema sauce that gets drizzled on top.

I used corn tortillas but flour (or gluten-free) tortillas will work beautifully here. I also love switching these up in crispy tacos or even burrito bowls. So good, and so perfect with a squeeze of lemon juice on top!

for the avocado crema sauce

  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, seeded and peeled
  • ½ cup Mexican crema*
  • ⅓ cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

for the tacos

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 (16-ounce) package riced cauliflower

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper in adobo sauce
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, optional
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup salsa, homemade or store-bought
  • tortillas, flour or corn

for the avocado crema

  • Combine avocado, Mexican crema, cilantro, lime juice and lime zest in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste. With the motor running, add 1/4 cup water in a slow stream until emulsified; set aside in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

for the tacos

  • Heat canola oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add cauliflower and onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic, chili pepper, cumin, oregano and cinnamon until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Stir in black beans and salsa. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced and flavors have blended, about 4-5 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Serve immediately in tortillas, topped with avocado crema.

*Mexican crema is a creamy, slightly tangy condiment (similar to sour cream and crème fraîche) and is used in a range of Mexican dishes from soups to stews and as a topping for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and more.
