First, you will need taco seasoning. You can either make it at home or use store-bought.

Then, grab corn tortillas, a head of cauliflower, a large bunch of cilantro, and limes.

Finally, the *special sauce* for the tacos consists of avocado, limes, cilantro, and your favorite seasonings.

And that's it, folks! An easy four ingredient crowd pleaser.
