Taco Salad with Spiced Roasted Potatoes

Taco Salad with Spiced Roasted Potatoes

I wanted a new way to spice up a burrito bowl or taco salad so I decided to use crispy roasted potatoes to replace rice. It was so delicious and hearty yet healthy. The potatoes add a denseness and texture to the salad and I topped it with black beans, onions, and corn mixture then add the regular taco toppings. I sliced the potatoes with homemade taco seasoning to tie them in. This is a great example of a Whole Foods plant based balanced meal. It’s a great way to mix up a traditional taco salad!
