I don’t know about you, but I could eat tacos just about every day of the year. There are just so many flavor combos, the possibilities are endless.

And today’s taco recipe is specifically tailored for Fall. Loaded with roasted butternut squash, crunchy cabbage & lettuce and a spicy chipotle cilantro sauce. These tacos have so many layers of flavor, you are going to want to make them again and again.

How to make these Vegan Butternut Squash Tacos

To get started, roast the squash and red onions with a little bit of olive oil and taco seasoning.

While the veggies are roasting, prepare your chipotle cilantro sauce by combining everything in a blender or food processor (I used my immersion blender – get it here). Set it aside and prep the rest of your toppings.

I topped these tacos with a combination of romaine and red cabbage – I think these two give these tacos the perfect amount of crunch. Lastly, dice some avocados and some more cilantro, and you are ready to assemble.

I like to heat my tortillas on an open flame, but you can also heat them up in the microwave or oven.

To assemble, layer some lettuce, cabbage, avocado and roasted veggies. Add a drizzle of sauce and a sprinkle of cilantro and get to eating!
