My mother is a vegetarian, and many dishes in my home have been altered to fit her diet. I move mountains to make her our beloved Mexican cuisine sans the meat. One of the dishes she loves best is veggie tacos. It’s sort of a hybrid between a quesadilla and a taco, and is garnished with queso fresco and avocado. They are seriously simple to make and my momma just loves them! MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • Heat tortillas over open flame before adding in the cheese to melt the cheese. This keeps the tortillas from breaking and keeps them firm.
