 I love a good meatless meal. I actually prefer meatless meals over a steak dinner, or fish, or chicken….. any meat! My husband on the other hand does not think it’s dinner if there is no meat on his plate. These tacos I think may have changed his mind. They are so hearty & filling.

Loaded with onion, bell peppers, cabbage (provides so much texture and flavor, and it holds up really well to the heat), brown rice, black beans, and corn. Serve on some toasted corn tortillas with some toppings and dinner is done! A 30-minute meal that is easy on your grocery budget and yummy to your tummy!

 Toasting the corn tortilla adds so much flavor to these and it only takes minutes. Just heat up a skillet on medium high heat, once hot just put a tortilla down and it will start to get some “burnt” spots (you can see some of those spots in the pic above) flip it over and cook the other side. So easy but adds a toasty corn flavor to the tacos.

I actually loved this filling as leftovers for lunch the next couple of days. I just heated some up and scooped it up with some multi-grain tortilla chips. Yum!

 I hope you enjoy these. The perfect, lighter meal for this month of resolutions.

    January 8, 2016 at 1:03 pm So if I don't have ready to serve rice, I should just cook brown rice and add it?

      January 8, 2016 at 4:57 pm Yes. That's what I missed! There was something that I wanted to make note of but could not remember what. Thank you! Yes, you can just cook rice (any kind actually) and add it into the skillet :)

      May 18, 2017 at 7:21 pm Hi Daveena. I have no idea about calorie count. The recipe as is makes several servings. I would say about 6 servings of 2 tacos each. There are calorie counters online you can use that will tell you the calorie count when you input the recipe. So sorry I could not help more!

    September 26, 2017 at 7:58 pm This is a regular prepared meal in our home. It always turns out delicious!! However, the rice requires longer to cook.

      September 27, 2017 at 12:28 pm So glad to hear you love this one! Are you using the heat & serve rice package or minute rice? Because if you use anything other than the 1 minute microwave pouch of rice, then it will take longer. Thank you for coming back to let me know :)

    December 4, 2017 at 6:18 pm The recipe states not to follow package directions for rice. I want to clarify that you put the uncooked rice into the skillet with other ingredients? The only liquids listed are the little bit of oil and lime juice. Is that correct? I'm confused how the rice will cook without any other liquid...feel like I am missing something. Thanks.

      December 12, 2017 at 1:48 pm If you use the correct rice package (the 1 minute, microwaveable) Uncle Ben's pack, then the recipe works just fine with just the oil and lime juice. The rice packet is orange and the brand is uncle ben's. Hopefully that helps.

      February 4, 2018 at 7:23 pm I use the smallest flour tortilla size. I think they label them 'soft taco' on the package. They're about 6" in diameter I would guess.

    May 2, 2018 at 11:52 am My vegetarian daughter asks for this quite often. We substitute pinto beans for black beans (personal reasons) and being a Texan by birth, we are required to use green chilies instead of bell pepper. LOVE IT! A GOOD recipe is one that is delicious if you follow directions to a tee. A GREAT recipe is one that allows substitutions and is still delicious!
