Potato Tacos with Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce are a delight!  They are vegetarian as well as vegan, so they make the perfect meal for Meatless Monday (or any day of the week).  Plus, they are delicious!  And who doesn’t love tacos?

The Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce is a wonderful condiment for these tacos.  It add a citrusy, tangy, flavor to the tacos.  You’ll have plenty of leftover sauce as well to enjoy later in the week on more tacos, rice, chicken, salad, etc.

Start by making the Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce.  Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend on high until smooth; jalapeno, cilantro, garlic cloves, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, vegan mayo, and salt.

I like to lightly chop the jalapeno and cilantro, and mince the garlic before adding it to the food processor so it’s easier to blend.  I also like to use a salad dressing container to store the sauce.  It’s easy to shake and pour and works well to store in the fridge.  Use any container that works for you to store the sauce.

Set the sauce aside until ready to use, then store the leftovers in the fridge.

Next, chop the potatoes and bell pepper and slice the avocado.  Also make sure to drain and rinse the black beans.  You want to do all the prep work ahead of time, so your ingredients are ready when cooking.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the potatoes and taco seasoning.  Stir to combine.  Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes, then uncover and stir.  You want the potatoes to get a little crisp on the outside but also want them cooked through.

Add the bell peppers and stir to combine.  Then cover and let cook for another 5 minutes.  Uncover and stir.  If the potatoes or bell peppers aren’t cooked through and tender, continue to cook but you can leave the skillet uncovered so you can watch the progress.

While the potatoes are cooking, add the black beans and refried beans to a pan.  Heat over medium heat and stir to combine.  You only want to heat the beans through, not cook them.  Stir occasionally while heating.

Please note, if you are vegan or have dietary restrictions, a lot of refried beans have lard in them so make sure to pay attention to the ingredients listed before purchasing!

You are now ready to assemble the tacos!  This is where the magic happens 🙂  Lay out a tortilla and add a scoop of the black bean mixture on top.  Use a spoon to spread it around on the tortilla.  Add a few slices of the avocado on top of the beans.  Then top with a heaping scoop of potatoes and bell peppers.  Sprinkle some shredded lettuce and fresh chopped cilantro on top.   Drizzle the Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce on top and enjoy!

So yummy!  The potatoes are crispy with a soft interior, the bell peppers are tender, and you can’t beat all the fresh flavors and ingredients on top!

Happy Cooking!
