Vibrant Bell Pepper and Zucchini Tacos

These easy, herbed veggie tacos were inspired by the seasonal vegetarian taco at a Portland restaurant we love (¿Por Qué No?). They always had a taco with sautéed summery vegetables served in chimichurri sauce, and it was a flavor explosion!

Our inspired version features seared zucchini, onion, and bell pepper, and can be modified with what’s seasonally available. The flavor comes in waves from the searing, the spices, the herbs, and fresh lime juice!
