Vegetarian and protein-filled, these Bean 'n' Veggie Soft Tacos are a health-minded chef's dream come true.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 zucchini, shredded
  • 1 yellow squash, shredded
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Adobo seasoning (see Note)
  • 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers

What to Do

  1. Whisk together cumin and Italian dressing in a large bowl. Add zucchini and next 3 ingredients; toss gently. Set aside.
     
  2. Combine black beans and next 2 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
     
  3. Spoon zucchini mixture evenly down center of each tortilla. Top evenly with bean mixture and cheese. Roll up tortillas; secure each with a wooden toothpick. Garnish with coarsely chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
     

Notes

  • Look for Adobo seasoning in the ethnic section of larger supermarkets. Or create a similar blend with 1/2 teaspoon chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder, and dried crushed red pepper.
     
  • Warming tortillas in the microwave or oven according to package directions makes them pliable and easy to roll up.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think I would want the veggies cooked. Quick saute maybe?

Is the zucchini left raw in this recipe? Sorry I haven't used zucchini a lot so if its a stupid question I apologize.

Good question - also the summer squash?

I would think that it is raw. It says to shred it and mix with the dressing and other ingredients.

It does look good, but recipe is missing the Note referred to by the Adobo seasoning? Not seeing it...

And carbs?
