It's Tuesday and we're makin' TACOS!

And even better than tacos on a Tuesday is 10-minute tacos on a Tuesday! Yes, as in 1-0. That's all it takes to make these delicious and healthy quinoa tacos. And with an ingredient list as basic as this, you really can't go wrong. Dinner planned.

Today I'm partnering with my friends from Sabra to bring you this super duper easy taco recipe and inside we're using their new Veggie Fusions guacamole dip. You guys, these dips are so good. They're basically like a lightened up guacamole with fun fruit and veggie add-ins.

They've still got the ultra-creamy texture, as ripe Haas avocados are the main ingredient, but they actually contain 30% less fat because of all the veggies! And don't worry…they're still packed with fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants, just cut out a little bit of the fat.

Plus, they come in three flavors–southwestern, garden vegetable and mango lime–and it takes guac eating to a whole new level.

VEGAN QUINOA TACOS -- with mango-lime guacamole and a spicy quinoa filling!

I'm using the mango lime as the base for these tacos and it's the combo couldn't be better. Paired with the crunchy red cabbage and spicy quinoa mixture, these tacos are flavorful, festive and totally fiesta-approved!

These simple Quinoa Tacos are made with a spicy mango-lime filling and use a creamy guacamole spread on the bottom!

And you are going to L-O-V-E this filling.

We're combining fluffy quinoa, ripe mango chunks, spicy salsa, aromatic Mexican spices, and tangy lime juice to make the ultimate meatless taco filling. Each bite has a meat-like quality to it, with bursts of sweetness of the mango and heat from the salsa. And it's all is tied together with that creamy guacamole spread.

Now I'm not usually a hard shell taco type of girl, but these might have changed my mind. Usually, when I'm eating a plate of soft corn tortilla tacos, they inevitably break apart after one bite and I end up with a huge mess on my plate that I scoop up with chips.

Hard taco shells? Don't break apart AND they kind of double as a chip. Genius! And such a great option for these quinoa tacos, which admittedly can be a tad messy. But messy in a totally fun-to-eat kind of way 😉

So…I hope I convinced to hop on the meatless taco train! If you've got 10 minutes to spare, then you can whip up these fabulous tacos and you'll look like a total superstar doing it. Healthy fast-food tacos with 100% whole food ingredients. Taco Tuesday = owned.

These super easy QUINOA TACOS are meatless, healthy and flavored with a spicy mango-lime filling!

  • Mix together the quinoa, mango, salsa, lime juices, spices and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Assemble the tacos: spread 1 tablespoon of the Veggie Fusions on the taco, topping that with 1 small bit of cabbage, then 2 - 3 tablespoons of the quinoa mixture. Repeat until all ingredients have been used.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro and a touch more fresh lime juice (or hot sauce) and enjoy!

  1. Loved this had to use guac since I couldn’t find the veggie fusions. Hope to find them soon. Can you guide me on how to determine if mangos are ripe. I bought 3 and one was bad although it wasn’t very soft? Would love more similar recipes. Oh and what type of quinoa do you like? I was tempted to buy red?

    • Yep, wait until they’re soft and smell very sweet 🙂 My favorite type of quinoa is white and then tri-color. The red is pretty nutty and fairly crunchy, so it’s great in salads, but I don’t like it as much in recipes like this. Let me know if you end up trying it! xo

  2. I bought all the ingredients to make these yummy looking tacos but was not able to find the new Sabra Veggie Fusions in my town! I’m sure they’ll still be good but I was really looking forward to trying the Mango Lime Veggie Fusion! Thanks for the recipe and I really enjoy your website!
