  1. Warm olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add diced zucchini, bell pepper, and onion to pan, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute onion until it's translucent and zucchini and bell pepper start to brown around edges. Turn heat off, stir in black beans and set aside.
  2. Mix yogurt, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl until incorporated. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  3. Wrap tortillas in a clean, slightly damp kitchen towel and heat in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  4. Divide tortillas and evenly distribute yogurt mixture. Spoon cooked vegetables onto warmed tortillas and garnish Mexican Cabbage Salad and hot sauce, if using.

Chef Tips

The cooked vegetable mixture can be stored in an airtight container or freezer bags, and frozen for up to several months. Simply thaw or reheat in a 350F oven when you want to whip up a plate of these tacos.
