Roasted Vegetables Soft Tacos with Cilantro - Jalapenos Sauce - Happy Cinco De Mayo

Taco is very now everywhere, but traditional tacos in Mexico is soft not the hard shell tacos like you see everywhere in US.

When we went to Mexico last month I came to know about this, they have no such thing as a hard shell taco. So here my share to the cinco de mayo , or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867) Recipe.

I just love soft tacos and very soon one desert recipe also will share it with you all so stay tune. In this particular taco, I roasted vegetables , make cilantro - jalapenos sauce and enjoy it with spicy kick from this sauce. You can choose your favorite vegetables in it and use it, But I try to do more authentic way and didn't added cauliflower or something non Mexican ingredients.  All vegetables are match sticks size so it cooked well.

Check out my cinco de mayo recipes  Cinco De Mayo Celebration

Ingredients :

1 onion matchstick slices
1  carrot 
1 green and red capsicum
1/4 cup black beans cooked
1/4 cup frozen corn, cooked and grilled
2 handfuls of spinach
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 Jalapenos slices
1/4 cup red cabbage
Salt as per taste
1 tbsp. paprika powder
1 tbsp. taco seasoning
Lime Juice as per taste
1 tbsp. oil
6 small soft tortillas

Cilantro - Jalapenos Sauce
Coriander (cilantro) Jalapeno Dip


Grilled all vegetables except red cabbage in cast iron or non stick pan and cut them in matchstick size.
Heat a non stick pan or  use the same cast iron and add oil, add garlic and jalapenos and cook for a minute.
Add all vegetables and all spices and mix it nicely, just warm the vegetables and don't over cook it because its already grilled , you don't want mushy vegetables but need a little bite in it.

To serve - warm the tortillas and put the stuffing in it, put some red cabbage and drizzle cilantro jalapenos sauce on top and some pickled or raw jalapenos on top and enjoy with a glass of margarita or juice or water or nothing. Just enjoy.

You can add cheese also but I don't like cheese so I didn't add it.
