1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small head cauliflower, finely chopped

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 cup salsa

Black Beans:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium yellow onion, diced

One 15-ounce can black beans (do not drain)

1 to 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce

Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper


Warm flour tortillas, for serving

Guacamole, fresh cilantro, thinly sliced scallions, shredded cabbage or bagged coleslaw mix and sour cream, for topping


  1. For the cauliflower: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and cook until it begins to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chili powder, garlic salt and oregano. Cook another 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the salsa and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Cook until the liquid has been mostly absorbed by the cauliflower, about 5 minutes.
  2. For the black beans: In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until tender and translucent, 6 to 7 minutes. Add the black beans with their liquid and the sriracha. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to gently mash the beans, leaving some texture.
  3. For the tacos: Build the tacos with the tortillas, black beans, cauliflower and desired toppings.
