We are happy to partner with Blue Apron and Top Bloggers on this post. 
spiced queso tacos

We are a busy family and we are often on the go a lot. Even during the summer we have schedules full of things for us to do so at the end of the day we take dinner seriously. Sometimes I just need that hassle free simple dinner that I know my entire family will enjoy.

We recently tried out Blue Apron and I liked that I was able to deselect a meal that I knew my family wouldn’t like. They also had meals that served 4 so I knew we all would be able to eat, I like that they had meal selections for families. Being vegetarian I also liked that I was able to pick a meatless option.

We tried the Spiced Queso & Pickled Red Onion Vegetarian Tacos first.tacos recipe With Blue Apron I liked how it included everything we needed to make two meals which were included in my first Blue Apron delivery. Including everything I needed for the tacos which everyone wanted to try first.  We started dinner by making sure we had all of our ingredients and then started blanching the green beans and then adding the Mexican Crema over the top. We let those sit out to the side while we prepared everything else. Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 6.35.23 PMThen we sliced and cooked the onions to pickle them, I have never done this but after doing it we will do this again. Adding the sugar and lime to the onion to pickle it really did work. Again as we got ready for the cheese just let these sit to the side to pickle. onions for tacosThen you just cut the Queso Para Freír and dip it in the spices. blue apron fried cheeseThen you will start to cook and I really loved both of these elements because our kitchen just smelt so delicious while they were cooking. Add the oil to the Pipits and brown them also adding more flavor and texture to the tacos. cooking tacosIn the end we just added all of the elements together and topped it with fresh client and avocado. Be sure to brown the tortillas to warm them up a big in the pan. The green beans and pickled onion really make this vegetarian taco unlike anything we’ve had and everyone liked it. tacos vegeterianYou can sign up with Blue Apron today and start making deliciously easy meals for your family.

  14. Heather on June 25, 2016 at 7:55 pm

    I don’t know that this would be up our alley (we’re definitely meat eaters and not onion people), but Blue Apron customizes, right? We’ve been VERY interested in trying them!

  15. Debra P on June 25, 2016 at 7:01 pm

    That is really an interesting recipe and I love how they explain it all. Those pickled onions look like a great touch. I have heard wonderful things about Blue Apron!

    I was just telling hubby I was in the mood for Mexican. I love any kind of salad. I could live without meat.

  18. Heather S-G on June 25, 2016 at 8:44 am

  19. Rebecca Swenor on June 24, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    Blue Apron meals I have never tried before but would love to try them. My favorite meatless meals are grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup. Thanks for sharing.

      I have to admit it is only this week I am starting to hear about Blue Apron, but oh my I do need to try! x

  26. Heather @ Kraus House Mom on June 24, 2016 at 10:22 am

    If I go meatless I usually make pasta primavera, lots of vegetables mixed in with some pasta. Of course I add cheese.

  27. Pam on June 24, 2016 at 8:40 am

    What an awesome Blue Apron box. My favorite part of going to the taqueria is the pickled red onions on the tacos.

  28. Jenn on June 24, 2016 at 7:08 am

    Our teenage daughter has been following a vegan diet. It can so hard sometimes. She is always meal planning ahead.

  29. Chrishelle Ebner on June 24, 2016 at 5:02 am

    I have heard so many good things about Blue Apron. These tacos look amazing. I could add some steak to them for my carnivore husband and also please my veggie loving daughters.

  30. Alli on June 24, 2016 at 4:48 am

    These vegetarian tacos look delicious and oh, so easy to make. I have a friend who is constantly raving about Blue Apron. I need to check it out.

  31. Leelo on June 24, 2016 at 12:14 am

    These tacos look absolutely delicious! I have never tried vegetarian tacos, but I think I might give these a try!

  32. Amanda Tempel on June 23, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    These look so delicious! And I just love that you pickled the onions. Pickled onions are my favorite!

    Also, I love your Blue Apron pack. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while.
