These Delicious Tacos were Actually Vegan
The chorizo is pre-seasoned, spicy and tasty. If I didn't know better I'd have sworn it was meat. Which says a lot because I usually avoid meat-substitute products because they often taste weird or have a strange texture. I'm excited to use this product again in things like a breakfast burrito, nachos, spaghetti sauce and it would probably be really good in chili.
- Textured Soy Protein
- Soy Oil
- Distilled Vinegar
- Red Pepper
I also grated half a carrot and set it aside to use later.
I used a third of the package of chorizo, 1/4 of a green bell pepper and the entire cipollini onion and had enough filling to make 6 tacos.
I love the grated carrots in place of cheese!
YAY! My soy chorizo tacos topped with finely grated carrots and taco sauce. They were so good I ate three that night! Other obvious additions would be diced tomato, guacamole, shredded cheese and/or chunky salsa.
My apologies if you live somewhere that doesn't have a Trader Joes because this post will probably give you "Soy Chorizo Taco" food envy :( My suggestion is if you have company coming from a city that does have a Trader Joes, ask them to bring you 3-4 packages when they come to town. The chorizo I purchased in early January had an expiration date of April 11th so it keeps for awhile. There may also be other brands available in your local area so it probably wouldn't hurt to check at your local grocery stores, especially health food stores.
And as a final footnote: I found the ceramic 4- taco shell holder in the last photo at the Goodwill years ago for around $3. I've always been glad I made that purchase because it comes in really handy on taco nights :)
