1 small yellow onion, chopped

2 ears corn, kernels cut off

8 oz. tempeh, cubed (found next to the refrigerated soy products)

1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and saute until starting to brown, about 7 minutes. Add corn kernels and tempeh, and saute another 2 minutes, or until corn is tender. Add beans, taco seasoning and 1 tablespoon water and saute another minute. Remove from heat and let cool slightly or until room temperature.

Place lettuce in a large serving bowl. Pile tempeh mixture on top. Arrange avocado, tomatoes, cheese, and cilantro on top of tempeh mixture. Garnish with lime wedges and serve with chips and dressing.
