Vegan Spicy Mayo Potato Tacos

September 30, 2019
Tacos are one of our favorite meals at my house. Although, sometimes I can get a little bored with the standard taco ingredients: Vegan ground beef, lettuce, vegan cheese, taco sauce and sour cream. Boring! So tonight I made a potato version instead. Cooking the potatoes until they are nice and crispy and coupling them with refried and black beans for a boost of protein. As well as some sriracha vegan mayo that is surprisingly easy to whip up. Not only is this meal super quick to make, about one taco is enough to fill you up for the rest of the evening. The avocado added on top gives the meal that extra boost of antioxidants and superfood power.
