Easy vegetarian taco


For my first recipe I'd like to put one of my favorites out there, vegetarian tacos.


Ingredients:
1 large white onion
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 packages taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers
1 cluster fresh cilantro
1 can corn
1 package meat replacement
2 packages corn tortilla taco shells
1 bottle salsa
1 package colby jack cheese
oil
Start by dicing the onions, jalapenos and cilantro. Bring the stewed tomatoes to a simmer on the stove and place in the onions jalapenos and cilantro. Simmer these for about 4 minutes until the onions are transparent. Next place in the taco seasoning and stir to mix well. Next place in the meat substitute and saute for 5 minutes. The corn should be placed in last and stirred to mix well.

Place the shells on a ungreased pan and put into a 350 degree oven for about 2-3 minutes, just enough to get them brittle (do not brown them). Place the meat mixture into the shells, followed by colby jack cheese and the salsa.

Enjoy! These are one of my all time favorite vegetarian treats =)

  9. That sounds totally delicious, though personally I'd have to go easy on the cilantro as it's such a strong flavor. I've been mostly vegetarian for about 4 years now and am considering giving the raw food diet a go! :]
