Chipotle Lentil Tacos turn this tasty vegetarian swap into an instant taco party! They’re packed with protein, have literally half the fat of their meaty counterparts, and totally delicious too.
Choosing vegan options for the toppings and either skipping or veganizing the aioli will make these tacos gloriously plant-based! I also love them with a little vegan sour cream on top. Delicious!
Since they hold their shape the best, I totally suggest using brown/green lentils for these tasty tacos!
While the smokiness and bold flavor is controlled by the chipotle peppers and sauce, the heat is mostly controlled by the cayenne. Feel free to use paprika in place of the cayenne if desired.
The aioli recipe makes about 3/4 cup of sauce. Feel free to halve the recipe if you only want a little.
