Love the idea but on a low-carb or keto diet? Turn your taco into a bowl!

Looking for an extra kick? Add some jalapeños or hot sauce to the mix!

vegetarian taco toppings

Loving this recipe idea but don’t have any of the toppings?

No sweat! After all, the beauty of a taco is anything goes — literally.

No pineapple but looking for some acidity?

Try a salsa fresca with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice!

Fresh out of cabbage? Lettuce, spinach, or any leafy green you’d eat in a raw salad works for some crunch here, too.

Looking for a larger portion? Add some sautéed bell peppers and onions for more veggies or some black beans for extra protein.
