Vegetarian Beef Taco

Vegetarian beef taco

It's amazing how far along the vegetarian meat industry has gone! There are dozens of options when it comes to vegetarian meat. You can find it in the frozen, refrigerated, or bulk sections. In this recipe, I've used frozen ground beef, which is surprisingly similar to the real thing. Who said you had to give up the pleasures of meat when you became vegetarian? Of course, if you do eat meat, we're not here to judge, feel free to use the real deal!
