In an attempt to reduce meat consumption in the house I threw together some "stuff" I had and came up with this little dish. Its simple and I thought tasty. On a budget trial and error sometimes is a blessing in a casserole dish ;)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb veggie crumbles (used morningstar bag of meatless crumbles, average sized bag)
  • 9 corn tortillas
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning (any brand will do)
