A Tacobility is a game mechanic in Plants vs. Zombies 3 that gives plants powerful effects. Each level is divided into 2 sections, with a middle stage called "Taco Time" that allows you to plant new plants, shovel them, move them and feed them Tacos, which give them Tacobilities that last the rest of the level. However, you get a limited supply per level, you can increase this taco supply by upgrading Taco Park. In Taco Time, no zombies spawn but you cannot generate sun. You can re-continue the level and exit Taco Time whenever you like.
The name is a portmanteau of "taco" and "ability."
