As I promised! Here’s the recipe for the Tacos a Vapor Veganos. It took me longer than I intended but the recipe is finally ready for the blog.

I used gluten free corn tortillas for these tacos and made the filling with potatoes cooked in a super tasty guajillo pepper sauce, I like to serve these tacos with steam onions, shredded cabage, lime and a super spicy green salsa. Just like I used to eat them back home on Friday mornings. Yes, these are breakfast tacos too.

Vegan Steamed Tacos/Tacos a vapor Veganos


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 3 guajillo peppers
  • 1 onion (divided)
  • 1 garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • cooking spray
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 25-30 tortillas I used (Tortiregias)
  • Finely shredded cabbage for topping
  • limes
  • Hot Salsa


  1. Peel, dice and boil the potatoes until tender.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil and add the guajillo peppers. Turn the burner off and let the peppers soak in the hot water until soft, about 5 min.
  3. Once the peppers are soft, blend them with 1/4 of the onion, 1 clove of garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper until very smooth.
  4. Strain the sauce.
  5. Thinly slice the remain onion.
  6. In a large skillet, add 1 tablespoon of oil, once it’s hot add the sauce (be careful, it will bubble) and cook for about 5 minutes (reserve about 1/4 cup for later).
  7. Add the cooked potatoes to the sauce and smash them, season them generously with salt and peppers. Set aside.
  8. Spray the tortillas both sides with cooking spray and warm them up, just until pliable. Brush the tortillas on one side with some of the remaining guajillo sauce.
  9. Add the potatoes on the clean side of the tortilla and start assembling the tacos in a steamer. Arrange the tacos in a circular way with the opening towards the walls of the steamer.
  10. Add one layer of tacos, one layer of onions and repeat until done finishing with onions.
  11. Cover the tacos loosely with clinging wrap and place the steamer on a pot of boiling water (the water should not touch the steamer).
  12. Steam the tacos for about 10 minutes. Let the tacos rest for a few minutes before serving, they may break if you rush them.
  13. Serve with shredded cabbage, onions, limes, and salsa.
  14. Enjoy!
