Butternut Squash and Black Bean Tacos

I hope everyone had a good weekend! I have been looking to make some vegetarian meals to offset some of the more meat centered meals we usually have (and Kevin loves). I got a little bit of resistance that this recipe did not have any meat, but Kevin and I both thought the tacos were yummy and filling!

It is good to have some meals that are more plant based in our diet, and you cannot go wrong with yummy veggie and bean tacos. Check out the recipe below!
