Introduction

This recipe uses TVP (textured vegetable protein) and beans instead of meat for taco filling. My kids and hubby LOVE it!! This recipe uses TVP (textured vegetable protein) and beans instead of meat for taco filling. My kids and hubby LOVE it!!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 Cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
    1 cup Salsa
    1 cup black beans
    1 cup fat free refried beans
    1/2 packet reduced sodium taco seasoning
    1 cup water

Directions

Add all ingredients to Crockpot, stir to completely wet TVP. Cook on high for 4 hours. Simmering in the crockpot makes the TVP soak up the flavor of the seasonings and the salsa.

The calories/nutritional info is just for the filling. Hard or soft taco shells, chips, and veggies, etc will be additional calories.

You can cut the sodium in this recipe by making your own taco seasoning. There is a recipe for this on SparkRecipes. You can also choose to use dry black beans and cook them yourself, which would cut the salt from using canned beans. Rinsing canned beans before putting them in the crockpot can reduce the sodium by up to 40% as well. And of course, making your own fresh salsa would also cut down the salt. Those changes do up the preparation time quite a bit, but it does remove a lot of the sodium.

My kids and husband just LOVE this recipe! They actually prefer their tacos meatless now. Miracles do happen! :)

    This is an amazing recipe!! I recently decided to go vegetarian and have been really missing meat. This definately satisfies my craving for ground beef tacos!! I used a can of organic black beans and organic chili beans. I used my own spices: garlic, onion poweder, chili powder, gr. red pepper - 2/20/10

    My husband will only eat meat and never eats leftovers. I made this recipe with tofu crumble and he had 5 tacos the first night, and had left overs 2 other days! I cant thank you enough for this recipe!!! - 8/11/12

    The only thing I would change for next time would be to cook it on low. My high setting scorched the bottom a little bit. Otherwise, fantastic, great flavor and texture. Made some amazingly delicious tacos. - 11/24/11

    The only change I made was to replace half the water with an equal amount of tomato sauce. It was wonderful and my husband didn't even realize it was vegetarian. - 4/13/11

    This was great. My husband loved them, (he's been worried since we decided to go vegetarian that food wasn't going to taste good anymore. This recipe proved him wrong). - 8/31/10
