READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Queenkungfu

A Jolinda Hackett recipe.his recipe uses store-bought salsa and taco seasoning to make a super-quick vegetarian taco filling from TVP. The TVP has a texture similar to shredded chicken when cooked. Wrap in a flour tortilla or stuff in a hard shell with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and green onions.

Quick, easy, low calorie and inexpensive - and did I mention Vegan??!?!? Great recipe. I made 1/2 the recipe but ended up using the full 1/4 cup of salsa. I also added 1/4 cup of tomato sauce (my preference). Next time I will definitely saute up a little onion and garlic and add it to the mix. Hubby loved it too. Served it in blue corn crispy taco shells topped with Vegan Pepperjack cheese, some tomatoes, avocado and hot sauce. YUM. I have some leftovers as well which I plan to use in burritos tomorrow with beans, rice tomato, lettuce and guacamole. Thanks for sharing.
