Recipe

So you may or not have guessed already that tacos are definitely one of my favorite foods, in my opinion they maybe should be a food group. However, this past weekend with a vegetarian friend coming into town, I realized that I did not have a delicious vegetarian taco option and didn’t want to leave her feeling left out making tacos completely of condiments so I began to research vegetarian taco options and came upon a great idea for butternut squash tacos. Season it up with some cumin, chili powder, and coriander and serve over some black beans and it is a combo that any meat eater would love .
