That time I made Vegan Tacos……

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!!

I love these vegan tacos that I made a while back…

I love this vegan taco recipe! These vegan tacos are quick easy to make and so good! It's perfect for cinco de mayo!

Last summer,  C-Dub had me convinced that being Vegan was what we should be. He argued me down, so we tried it. And….I found that I really really really love a good steak…and cheese….

I mean, not like all the time, but every once in a while.

So we gave up on being Vegan. But while we were experimenting, you might say, I created a lot of recipes that I know that I will continue to use.  One of those experiments were these vegan tacos and they were…so good. It’s so easy to make and only has a few ingredients!

The recipe is so colorful for my vegan tacos! It has all sorts of peppers and onions and portabella mushrooms!

They key to making me forget they were vegan were the Portabella Mushrooms.  They are a great substitute for steak/meat.

These are really really good guys!

You don’t have to make your own Guacamole to go on it, I just chose to because I have always hated guacamole..until I made my own.

So since it’s Cinco De Mayo, I thought I’d share my vegan taco recipe along with my homemade guacamole one.

Both are quick and easy recipes for you to enjoy!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

These easy vegan tacos are perfect for Cinco De Mayo or any other time during the year!
