INSTRUCTIONS

1
Roast the carrots

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Add carrots, maple syrup, just half the chipotle pepper in adobo and reserved adobo sauce, 1 tbsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt to a baking sheet and toss. Roast until carrots are lightly browned at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil). TIP: Add more chipotle pepper and adobo sauce if you prefer more heat.

2
Finish roasting carrots and pumpkin seeds

Sprinkle pumpkin seeds over the carrots. Return the baking sheet to the oven and cook until the seeds are lightly browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. TIP: Leave the oven on for your tortillas.

3
Heat the beans and warm the tortillas

Add mojo verde and black beans to a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Using the back of a fork, smash about half the beans and stir until incorporated with remaining whole beans. Wrap tortillas in foil and place in oven to warm, 4 to 5 minutes. TIP: If you have a gas stove, you can heat the tortillas directly over a low flame. Use tongs to flip the tortillas until warmed through and lightly browned on both sides. You can also wrap tortillas in a clean dish towel and warm in the microwave for 15-30 seconds to soften.

4
Assemble the tacos and serve

Divide warm tortillas between plates and top with mojo verde black beans, maple-chipotle carrots, and spicy pepitas. Finish with avocado and lime juice. Tuck in!
