Craving Mexican Food? Best Vegan Tacos you will ever have!!

Lets be honest, we all crave some good, fresh Mexican food.  I'm not talking about those loaded nachos and burrito that you get at 2AM after a night of drinking.  I'm talking about just fresh and simple ingredients that are bright and burst with flavor.

In America I feel like there is a misconception of Mexican food.  This can actually be said about most cuisines.  We tend to go overboard and not showcase the beauty and natural flavors of the ingredients indigenous to that land.  It's not about the bigger and better.  Sometimes it's about the simple and delicious.

Vegan Tacos

In this case, I showcase all of Mexico's flavors, but substitute meat for either soy chorizo or a walnut blend (if you are gluten free and/or are raw). 

Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo
Homemade Guac (avocado, red onion, lime, jalepeno, diced tomatoes, salt)
chopped red onion (set half aside)
corn (it's up to you whether canned or shucked from the cob and cooked_
black beans
salsa (either homemade or store bought)
chopped spinach or romaine lettuce
soft corn taco shells

heat pan with evoo on medium.  saute red onions until soft, add in soy chorizo and black beans until hot.  Place your shells on a plate and warm in microwave for 10 seconds.  Add all your ingredients in your preferred order and have a fiesta!
