Author Notes: I am bringing my grill game to the veggie garden this year and our beets are not going to be overlooked. I saw a quesadilla recipe with grilled beets and goat cheese from eating well and which ended up being the inspiration for these tacos. They would be great served as an appetizer.Liz | inspired by the seasons
