Veggie Tacos

There is no question that I love meat. By no means am I a vegetarian. But these Veggie Tacos are SO good that I seriously did not even notice or care that my taco was meat free. Loaded with healthy vegetables and perfectly spiced, each vegetarian taco is topped with fresh cilantro and Queso Fresco cheese crumbles. They taste so light and fresh, and are incredibly flavorful…I could eat them all day long! Each 2 taco serving is just 8 Points, and is very satisfying. I paired a serving with some low calorie red pepper soup, and felt quite full. I made a big batch, and reheated the next day for lunch and they were just as fantastic. These Veggie Tacos are perfect for feeding just the family or a large crowd, and are sure to be a hit. My husband and I LOVED them, and I definitely plan on adding them into my regular rotation of Weight Watchers Recipes.
