Tips

  • Super short on time or short on fresh spices? Toss in a half to two-thirds of a packet of taco seasoning in place of the individual spices, because why not?
  • Keep the hot sauce nearby, if that's your thing, and sneak in some ​homemade guacamole, if avocados are in season.
  • You can add in some meat substitute, lightly browned seitan or even a bit of sauteed or fried or baked tofu, if you want something a bit heartier.
