Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-heat until hot. Add 1/2 cup red onion and a pinch of salt and sauté until aromatic and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add the plant-based crumbles and taco seasoning and cook until heated through, about 5-8 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly then set aside to cool slightly.  


Step 2

In a large mixing bowl combine romaine, green and red bell pepper, 1/2 cup red onion, and cilantro and toss thoroughly to combine.  


Step 3

Divide romaine mixture evenly on plates or in bowls and top with an equal amount of cooked plant-based protein crumbles, black beans, salsa, and crumbled tortilla chips. Serve immediately.
