Enchiladas. Mole. Flautas. We’ll chow down on some good Mexican food whenever we get the chance, but sometimes we want something just a little lighter. One of our faves? Tacos. Here’s a fresh vegetarian take on the tried and true classic. Bonus: this dish only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, so if you’re famished after a workout it’s just the ticket.


  • Several whole leaves of bibb lettuce, washed
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can vegetarian refried beans
  • ½ medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup cotija cheese, crumbled (substitute feta if cotija is not available near you)
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 whole carrot, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


How to Make ‘Em

  1. Heat olive oil in medium skillet. Sautee onions.
  2. Add refried beans, black beans and jalapeño pepper. Heat thoroughly.
  3. Spoon bean mixture into lettuce leaves and top with cherry tomatoes, avocado, Greek yogurt, cotija cheese and carrot to garnish.
  4. Enjoy!
