It’s a simple dish. A perfect meal for a night when dinner hasn’t been planned and you need something quick. All you’ve gotta do is chop up a few veggies, cook some tempeh and some of the vegetables, warm up the tortillas (totally optional), and you’re ready to dish up!
  Tortilla 4 (Corn or Flour)
  Tempeh/Ground meat 8 Ounce
  Tomato 1 Large (Diced)
  Lettuce 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Shredded)
  Corn 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sweet pepper 1 (Diced)
  Onion 1 Medium (Diced)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1 Pinch
  Garlic powder 1 Teaspoon
  Smoked paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Cumin 1 Pinch
  Apple cider vinegar 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 3 Tablespoon
  Greek yogurt To Taste (for topping)
  Salsa To Taste (for topping)
  Cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs) (grated)
  Avocado 1 (optional for topping) (Optional)
  Cilantro To Taste (chopped, optional for topping) (Optional)

Getting Ready:
1. Heat oven for a few minutes. Turn off and place tortillas (wrapped in tinfoil) to warm.
2. Heat pan. Add oil.

1. Add crumbled tempeh, onion, corn, peppers, and seasonings.
2. Cook about 10 minutes over medium heat (or until veggies are tender and tempeh is heated through), stirring occasionally. (Note: If using meat, add meat in place of tempeh, cook completely.)
3. In center of tortilla add a bit of the tempeh mixture and top with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, yogurt, and any other toppings.

1. Either fold at one end and roll sides in, or fold in half (works well for a larger taco).
2. Enjoy with your favorite toppings, or the suggested ones in this recipe!

*This meal is vegetarian (unless you substitute for the tempeh with meat), and can be gluten free by using corn tortillas.
