Soy Chorizo Tacos


I know...I know..SOY chorizo?! But yes...these tacos were so tasty and much healthier than their meat counterparts. I've been trying to lay off meat, so I may be posting more meatless recipes. Meatless and dairy-free (a.k.a Vegan) may sound blah, but I'm amazed at the flavors of plant-based food! Plus, they're easier on your body and much healthier for you. Also, the chorizo needs no seasonings--it tastes like the real thing. Give 'em a try!

Ingredients

1 Tbs olive oil
8 oz vegan chorizo or taco crumbles (found in the tempe and tofu section)
4-6 corn shells (or soft, if you prefer)
1/2 C diced onion
1/2 C chopped tomatoes
1 C tofu sour cream (Tofutti brand)
2/3 C shredded vegan cheese (Rice brand is good)
Prepared salsa
I added diced avocado and chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over med-high heat (I added the onions at this time and cooked until softened). Add the chorizo or taco crumbles and cook, stirring until heated through, 3-4 mins.

Arrange onions (if you want more), lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, cheese, avocado, salsa and cilantro in bowls. Assemble as you want! Enjoy!
