Chipotle-Lime Cauliflower Tacos

Chipotle-Lime Cauliflower Tacos

In this vegetarian taco recipe, cauliflower is tossed with a smoky-tangy sauce made with honey, lime juice and chipotles in adobo sauce before being roasted. Serve with more hot sauce, if desired.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 15-ounce can refried black beans, warmed
  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
  • ½ cup crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese
  • Sliced red cabbage, fresh cilantro, guacamole, jalapeño slices and/or lime wedges for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • Combine lime juice, chipotles to taste, honey, garlic and salt in a blender. Process until mostly smooth. Place cauliflower in a large bowl, add the sauce and stir to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle onion on top.
  • Roast, stirring once, until the cauliflower is tender and browned in spots, 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve the vegetables and beans in tortillas, topped with cheese and garnished with cabbage, cilantro, guacamole, jalapeños and/or lime wedges.

Tips

MAKE AHEAD TIPS
  • To prepare florets from a whole head of cauliflower, remove outer leaves. Cut off the stem. Turn head upside down and, holding the knife at a 45-degree angle, slice around the stem to remove the core from center of head. Break or cut florets into the desired size. To store, refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 5 days.
  • Chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful, spicy sauce. Look for the small cans with Mexican foods at large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.
