More About This Recipe

  • Who said tacos can only be made with meat? Vegetarian tacos, like these filled with zucchini and corn, are an excellent alternative for those who don’t want to eat meat. They're also really great for lent. Personally, I love vegetarian tacos, especially after the new year when we want to eat more nutritious meals to lose weight or just eat a little lighter after the holidays.
