Tacos or Burritos???...Take Your Pick
I think everyone in the U.S. has had tacos or burritos by now. Mexicans seems to always attracts customers to their restaurants for a little flavor of what's cooking on the other side of the border. But since I cannot go out to eat because of food allergies, I avoid restaurants.
I was desiring some Mexican inspired food, so I settled for some homemade wheat tortillas and some fresh veggies over some vegan ground round meat. I feel secure knowing I can eat this meal that has NO corn contamination from its cooking.
My tortilla recipe cannot be disclosed at this time because I am planning to add it to a Caribbean vegan cookbook I am putting together, but your store bought tortillas will do.
Vegan Ground Round meat recipe:
1 package of Vegan ground round
1 diced yellow onion
5 well mashed fresh garlic cloves
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. red crushed peppers
1/2 c. jar Salsa
1 envelope of taco seasoning
Unite all ingredients in a skillet, simmer on low and then add your ground round to it. Stir on a medium low heat and simmer, stir a few times before preparing your taco. Check and see if you would like some salt and if you do just add gently.
On your Tacos or tortilla smear a hefty amount of refried beans, then place your meat over the beans, add a little salsa and then add lettuce tomatoes, diced onions and top it off with some vegan cheddar cheese.
