  • 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

Tips: Look for small cans of smoked chipotle peppers in adobo sauce near other Mexican ingredients in well-stocked supermarkets. Once opened, refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 6 months.

To prep cauliflower: Remove any 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. Cut the head into large florets. Then, cut or slice florets to desired sizes.
