How to Cook Veggie Tacos
Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet and sauté the onion until soft or translucent this is usually around 3-5 minutes. Then add in 2 tsp Chugwater Chili seasoning and stir to allow the onion to be coated with chili seasoning.
Now add a diced red bell pepper and one large carrot shredded and cook until softened which is around 3-5 minutes. If you choose to add other veggies you can add them at this time too.
Once your bell pepper and carrot has softened, stir in 3 Tbs cream cheese until melted. This helps give the taco a creamy taste. If you have corn you can add in 1 cup of frozen or fresh corn to the pan and cook until heated. If you want a more vegan taco leave out the cream cheese.
To add in more color and nutrition add in a bunch of spinach and stir for 2 minutes until it starts to get a wilted look. You do not want to over cook the spinach to the point it becomes soggy and mushy.
Next move the mixture to a serving dish. Wipe the skillet clean and add the rinsed and dried black beans with a pinch of Chugwater Chili Seasoning, and roast on medium high heat for about 5 minutes. Let the beans pop and crisp.
