Vegetarians and vegans looking for meatless tacos need to look no further than this recipe by food blogger Naturally Ella that uses a mix of black beans and roasted butternut squash as filling. These delicious tacos are equally as filling and piquant as the meat alternative and are a great source of protein.

While meatless tacos might sound like they skip out on protein, these tostadas incorporate black beans as a vegetarian alternative. The recipe calls for butternut squash cooked with red onion, salt, olive oil and chipotle peppers for added flavor and spice. The beans combine sweet and salty flavors with a sauce made from honey, lime, cumin and fresh cilantro. The tacos can be topped however you please with goat cheese and more cilantro stacked on top of soft corn tortillas.
