This super easy recipe for red bean soft tacos is both vegetarian and delicious! There's nothing better than a hearty, healthy dinner with family or friends, and nothing more fun than assembling your own masterpiece exactly to your liking. I love the atmosphere this dish creates, spreading laughter and fun. These tacos are also packed with flavors, with a smokey, spicy feel to them. Softer flavors are brought through in the vegetables and garnishes, creating a Mexican feast, all wrapped up in a delicious soft taco. Store leftovers (if somehow there's any left!) separated into their various components in a airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
