Beans & Greens Tacos with Watermelon Salsa + GF Tortillas

I am absolutely obsessed with tacos.

a) they're beyond delicious, b) they're super versatile in what you can stuff in there (fish, veggies only, chicken, flank steak -- I love allllllll the tacos), c) you can dress them up with various salsas and guac (peach guac, sriracha corn salsa, this super summer-y watermelon salsa, etc.), and d) everyone loves them.

These new Beans and Greens Tacos with Watermelon Salsa are the epitome of summer --- with greens from the garden (or grocery store, lol) and juicy watermelon! They happen to be vegetarian AND amazing, made with a hearty combination of black beans, quinoa, corn, sauteed greens, and walnuts. These tacos are an excellent source of plant-based protein as well as fiber and a plethora of vitamins and minerals. And the best part is... even picky eaters like devour them.

And whether you're gluten-free or not, these Udi's tortillas are worth trying --- seriously my new fav!

I honestly was super surprised by how much I liked these gluten-free tortillas!! As mentioned above, I eat a lot of tacos. At home. At restaurants. On the street. Which means I've eaten a lot of different tortillas in my life. And these are some of the best I've had. They do have a slightly odd texture straight out of the package, so I suggest baking them in the oven with fresh lime juice and coarse sea salt rather than just having them raw.

They were like the perfect cross between a flour tortilla and a corn tortilla. And just look at how perfectly they bent up to hold all that yummy goodness. And... they kept their structural integrity throughout the entire meal. Yay for not breaking or cracking!
