Bean & Butternut Tacos with Green Salsa

The Simple Art of EatingWell, September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (44 votes)

Beans and roasted butternut squash make an outstanding vegetarian taco filling. For the best flavor, use fresh, good-quality chili powder and Mexican oregano. Look for both at Latin markets or in the bulk spice section at well-stocked natural-foods stores.

I will make this often with the caveat that I'll make some components ahead of time, like make a double batch of the salsa when I have a Saturday afternoon free. I added to the cooking burden by making homemade corn tortillas with it but it was a beautiful, healthy, delicious dinner.

Very Delicious!

Too much work for too little result

These tacos were way too much work for too little taste. I had to doctor everything to improve the flavors. I liked my doctored version, but would not recommend the original to anyone. Sorry.

Learned to make green salsa with tomatillos

Pretty Good Autumn Vegetarian Entree

My husband loved these tacos, but the dried chiles spoiled the squash for me. Also, in holding out for browning, I overcooked the squash. Instead of assembling the tacos myself, I put all the fixings on the table for diners to make their own. We had to eat part of the beans and squash with a fork, as there weren't enough tortillas for all that food.

Fantastic Green Salsa

This was such a great dinner last night! Even my 8 year old daughter liked it - with the exception of the squash... haha! But I forgot to make the pinto beans the night before and the only canned beans I had were kidney beans and it was excellent!! The mix of flavors were an excellent combination!! I will definitely make this again and try different varieties of squash and beans! :)
