In my experience, everyone loves a great taco salad but with deep fried crunchy shells, loads of cheese, and heavy dressing - they can easily rack up the calories and fat. This vegetarian version is light on calories but full of flavor. It's made with vegetarian crumbles that are spiced up with a homemade taco seasoning. Then we add some corn, black beans, lots of veggies, toasted tortillas, and cheese to make it a complete meal.
