i think i've just eaten the best tacos i've EVER had. i'd post pics, but, um... i ate the evidence :-D
i had some leftover burritto filling in the fridge which i added to the TVP and veggies. i used about half of my leftover burritto filling in this, so you may have to reportion the ingredients. if you want it all to even out, then i think doubling the TVP, or halving the burritto fillng will work. oh, made some spicy guacamole, too.
Taco & Burritto Filling
1 cup TVP (textured vegetable protien)
Taco seasoning (your own mix, or prepackaged - i used Bearito's)
green peppers (diced)
portabella mushrooms (diced)
1 tbsp oil
burritto filling ingredients:
1 can refried beans
1 can black beans (drained)
1 can sweet corn (drained)
1 cup (dry) rice
spanish rice seasoning (your own mix, or prepackaged - i used Bearito's)
burritto filling - cook rice according to your method of cooking rice, along with the spanish rice seasoning. in a large bowl or container, mix together cooked rice, refried beans, black beans, and corn.
hydrate TVP with the taco seasoning.
saute garlic, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions until they soften up. add hydrated TVP. continue to cook, stirring occasionally. when TVP starts to brown, add some of the burritto filling. let cook for 5 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. you can cook it until it's just heated, but i prefer it slightly browned.
spoon this excellent mix into your choice of taco shell or tortilla. garnish with taco sauce, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and guacamole.
easy spicy guacamole
1 or 2 ripe avocados
about 1/4 to 1/2 a lemmon (or lime) (or the equivalent in juice)
1 tbs minced garlic
1 tbs salsa
1/4 tsp Dave's Insanity Sauce hot sauce (optional)
a dash of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder (yes i know it's redundant)
in a small food processor (i used an attachment for my hand-held blender) add all ingredients and blend to desired consistency. i used the juice of half a lemmon and it was too much (not thick enough), so i'd suggest using less lemon juice or more avocado.
