Although we naturally think of beans when it comes to making meatless tacos, sometimes it's nice to add a grain element to the mix for something different. Lately barley has been one of my favorite ingredients so I took my traditional slow cooker bean taco recipe and substituted half the beans for pearl barley. The spicy, hearty filling is perfect for tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, or over greens. It also freezes great.
