These tacos are simple and spicy. They're great to make when you dont have a lot of time and need something tasty and easy to make. It's the only vegetarian tacos I can get my husband to eat. Top them with some fresh or pickled jalapenos for an extra kick. This recipe can also be found at charlieforstar.com.
