It's meatless Monday and we're rolling it over into taco Tuesday! No matter when or where you have these Vegetarian Crunchy Tacos, you're sure to love them. For the past couple of months we've had 'Taco Tuesday' for dinner in my house, and I'll be honest in saying that I've tried out several different variations of tacos among all of those Tuesdays. However, none can quite compare to the traditional and classic crunchy taco.
Until now, that is.
These meatless tacos are every bit as good (if not better) than the original. They are stuffed full of all of the flavor and toppings that you know and love in a traditional crunchy taco with one thing missing. Meat! Don't worry thought, it's been swapped out for something amazing.
I didn't exactly make a new year resoluion, but I guess you could say I made a vegolution instead! I resolved to cook and eat less meat this year. Especially less red meat. MorningStar Farms have great products that are a great way to incorporate vegetables into your new years resolutions. What is your vegolution?
To give these tacos a bit more substance, I added some Great Value™ Frozen Corn to my griller crumbles. I then toped it all off with my favorite taco toppings like green leaf lettuce, shredded cheese, and yes... even guacamole!
Yum! To keep these lightened up, I of course swapped the meat out for the griller crumbles. I also used a reduced fat cheese, lightened guacamole, and plain fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
At the end of it all, these tacos were amazing and will make a great meatless Monday or taco Tuesday meal! You can add the guacamole or some avocado, but I've left that as an optional topping here.
