Vegan Chorizo Tacos

This is what I like to call Heaven in a Tortilla…

The magic comes from the soy chorizo (I use Trader Joe’s brand). It really knocks most mock meats out of the park. HOWEVER, don’t fret, because the secret to their magic is really just spices, spices and more spices so if you can only find a basic ground “beef” crumble, you can still duplicate the flavor for the most part by following the super easy instructions below.

Makes 6-8 tacos

12 oz. package of soy chorizo (or basic crumbles)

Package of taco shells (corn or flour, hard or soft, is up to you)

1/2 cup each of diced red onion, red pepper and yellow/orange pepper

1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes (or to taste)

2 Tbsp of oil

****For basic crumbles users****

add in: 1/2 tsp each of paprika, garlic, chili powder, cumin and onion powder

Sauté over medium heat until onions are lightly browned and peppers are crisp-tender, about 3-4 minutes

Serve hot in warmed tortillas with condiments.
Optional Condiments:

Shredded lettuce

Shredded carrot

Vegan shredded cheddar or pepperjack

diced tomatoes

Tahnee’s Guacamole! (see recipe below)
