Recipe Details


Fact: We’re obsessed with tacos. These vegetarian ones are piled high with some of our favorite ingredients. Nutty, spiced chickpeas are roasted until they’re irresistibly crispy while seasonal cauliflower becomes caramelized and tender. Corn tortillas are layered with all the pretty colors: quick-pickled red onion and vibrant jalapeño peppers. Our lighter take on Mexican lime crema uses Chobani Greek yogurt in place of traditional sour cream for a smooth, creamy sauce that you’ll want to dollop on every taco you meet.
