Taco Week

Putting that salsa to good use, here are three ways I've been eating tacos everyday this week!  Ranked from most favorite to least: avocado, kale, salsa as the winner...


Second best: soy crumbles in taco seasoning, kale, and salsa.... (In the background, a comal which is essentially a cast iron flat top, which I use for heating tortillas. I purchased it a decade or more ago from a Mexican supermarket)


Least favorite, but I'm trying to re-work the sauce: molé sauce with portobello mushrooms, kale, and salsa.

I expected the sauce to be more flavorful than it is. So, I will report back this weekend - worse case scenario is I make enchiladas with the sauce!

  1. I've never tried kale in tacos, now it looks like I need to, and soon!

    1. I considered buying shredded iceberg, but I figured shredding kale would be more nutritious!

  2. Oooh! Tacos for days, I love it! Sometimes simple is best I guess. Have you ever tried sweet potatoes in tacos? I've heard that sweet potato and black beans are a great combination. That avocado is beautiful by the way. WHat kind of soy crumbles do you use? I used to love fake meat back in my very early vegan days but I've been liking it less and less as time goes on. Do you have any recommendations?

    1. I'm not big on fake meats either, this was a way to use up the rest in the freezer! These were Boca Crumbles, but I can't say they're the best. Avocado > everything else! Ha ha!

  3. Beautiful pics. Looks like to got a perfect Avocado. You will be all TexMexed out by Sunday if you keep on like this.

    Glad you're watching Ben's season. it is a good one. Stupid Olivia with her crickets, ugh! Downton Abbey is wrapping things up nicely so we will miss them even more.

    1. I took a break from tacos tonight, and I think I'm going to leave the salsa with my folks. I'm not going to get through it in time!

      Downton Abbey is going so quickly! I'm so sad it is the last season. It'll be interesting to see how long Olivia sticks around - hopefully she's outta there soon!

    2. Left her stranded on a deserted island. Love that show so much. Congrats on your time winning BTW.

  4. I ordered my taco cleanse book and refuse to eat any until it arrives! Great call on the fresh kale.

  5. Too bad about the mole sauce. I've never had or made it, but have always been curious. It looks pretty! I usually like some sort of protein in my tacos - maybe beans would have been better than the boca crumbles?

    1. I think I'm an avocado girl, through and through! The mole sauce is now out for the squirrels. I tried to better it, but to no avail!

  6. I'm all for taco week. The sauce may not have been everything you hoped for taste wise, but it is pretty as a picture!

    1. Taco week was fun, but now the remaining corn tortillas are in the freezer and I don't want to see them for a month! Ha!
