Vegan Chipotle Tacos 

Well… my first experience with a meatless dinner was a success! How strange is it that so much of our cultures food revolves around meat and dairy?! After watching an incredible documentary on Netflix called “What the Health” you could say I was inspired to branch out and try some vegan/vegetarian recipes. Choosing a plant based lifestyle has SO many benefits and is definitelty something I will be incorporating into my daily living as much as possible. Am I going to give up my steak and cheese??? No. I will however be practical and eat according to my cravings. Today I share with you an AMAZING taco recipe that is sure to be a crowd fave! 

Ingredients:

Tacos 

  • Light life meatless Mexican crumbles (I got them at natural grocers but Walmart has the original crumbles you could season yourself with a taco packet of seasoning) 
  • 1-2 cups Quinoa or brown rice 
  • Shredded lettuce 
  • Diced tomato 
  • Sliced avacado 
  • 1/2 can of black beans 
  • 1/2 can of corn 
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce 

    Chipolte Sauce 

    • 1/2 cup of coconut yogurt plain and unsweetened or plain Greek yogurt 
    • 1 chipolte in adobo sauce deseeded 
    • 1 Tsp of adobo sauce 
    • 1 TBS lime juice 
    • 1 tsp of minced garlic powder 
    • 1/8 tsp of cumin 

      Directions:

      • Make quinoa or brown rice (I use boil in bag) in the mean time prep everything else. 
      • Heat crumbles over low/medium heat until crumbled. Drain and rinse the black beans then add them to crumbles along with drained corn and 1/2 cup of tomato sauce and mix well. 
      • Chop lettuce, avacado and tomoato if you want one 

      Sauce 

      • De-seed the chipolte pepper (just scrape the seeds out on a cutting board) then place in blender or food processor. 
      • Add in yogurt and garlic, cumin and lime juice and adobo sauce. 
      • Blend until smooth. 

      Assemble the tacos in a corn or flour tortilla however you like your tacos and enjoy 🙂
