Blackened Broccoli Tacos

My Hungry Harvest box last week came with all kinds of goodies- including 4 heads of broccoli!  So, I decided to have taco week for the first time with a variety of different fillings.  The Blackened Broccoli was definitely the favorite!  It’s amazing how much flavor you can pack into a few small bites- savory and char from the broccoli, tangy and creamy from the avocado spread, complemented with the freshness of the cojita cheese… enjoy!


2 avocados
2 tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
corn tortillas (number varies depending on the size and how stuffed you want the tacos)
2 cups Blackened Broccoli florets
1 Roasted Red Pepper, cut into thin strips
2 tbsp cojita cheese, crumbled


1.  In a small bowl, mash the avocados with the lime juice, cilantro, and salt using a fork.

2.  Assemble the tacos: Heat a skillet on high (I use cast iron).  Place a tortilla on the skillet and let it cook for 30 seconds – 1 minute.  Flip and heat the other side for 30 seconds – 1 minute.  There should be a few dark spots on both sides.

Spread a thick layer of the mashed avocado down the middle of the tortilla.  Place a layer of broccoli florets on top of the avocado.  Layer 2-3 roasted red pepper strips on top of the broccoli.  Sprinkle a teaspoon of cojita cheese on top.  Serve immediately!
