Directions

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

Making:
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.

Serving:
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!

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