Vegan beet, arugula & avocado tacos


Last night I made chicken and black bean tacos with a super yummy mango salsa and I couldn’t wait until lunch to eat leftovers. When I opened the fridge this afternoon I saw the saddest thing ever, and empty plate. Turns out the girl child had been sneaking pieces of chicken all morning and she had devoured the entire plate.

I was craving tacos so badly and I didn’t have any more meat around. And then I thought, who says tacos have to be made with meat? No matter how empty my fridge is there are always beets inside so I decided to fry some up and make some beet tacos. I added arugula for a bit of spice and  avocado to make them creamier.

These were so good and when my dog decided to eat all the tortillas I tossed all the ingredients into a salad and it was just as delicious. These are super quick and easy  so you won’t have to be in a hot kitchen long. If the kiddos want to help out let them assemble their own tacos!
