It doesn’t take much to make these incredibly flavorful Sheet-Pan, Chipotle Portobello Tacos – smoky, spicy and “meaty” – these vegan tacos are sure to satisfy even the most diehard meat-lovers!
Chipotles give portobellos their deep smoky heat, while Vegan Cilantro Crema and Pickled Onions give them a delicious punch of flavor. But if pressed for time, free to swap out basic guacamole or Avocado for the Cilantro Crema and trade out the roasted onion for the pickled onions.
At the base of the tacos are warm refried black beans, which add a delicious richness without fat or dairy. If feeling energetic – know you can always make your own refried beans….on the stove or in an instant pot. 🙂
A lot of flavor happening here friends, with not a lot of calories, and no animals involved. Just plants. My favorite kind of meal.

I’ve been thinking a lot about habits lately. The simple things we routinely do on most days that contribute to feeling alive and joyful, and the ones that do the opposite. And there are plenty of the opposite. For me it starts with just looking at these. Sitting with what is. Then honestly asking myself, am I happy with the way things are?
Is there a small habit I could drop, or a small one that I could begin, that would bring more joy into my days? I’m talking small here friends. Like – actually doing those shoulder exercises my physical therapist prescribed, drinking more water, making my bed when I get up, lighting a candle, or staying off electronic devices first thing in the morning.
Then acknowledging that I create my life- taking responsibility for what is, and what I can change. If I want. I think the problem is most days we just do what we habitually do, without really being aware or intentional. And life goes on like this…
And one day we wake up and realize, we are not happy, we are not healthy, we are not where we want to be. AT ALL.
For some of you, who are thinking about becoming a vegetarian or vegan, but are overwhelmed by the huge changes this would present, I encourage you to start small.
Perhaps you could start with just one meal a day. Like breakfast, or lunch.
And once you got comfortable with that, then do two vegan meals. Little steps.
The vegan Cilantro Crema will last up to 10 days in the fridge and can be used on Mexican Baked Potatoes, Burrito Bowls, Enchilada Pie or simply as dip for cut up veggies! You could also substitute mashed, seasoned avocado or guacamole for this.
The quick-pickled onions are a breeze, you’ve most likely made these before and probably already have them on hand! They take 10 minutes and add a punch of flavor.
So there you have it…. super easy and yummy. Repurpose the leftovers ( if any) into a burrito bowl.
