Sorry guys, no witty banter today. One of my dogs went in for a spay and she is nooooot happy. But, since I promised, and since I love you, I give you tacos.
Tempeh Tacos an Idiot Could Probably Make
1 tsp Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 8 oz block Tempeh
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes, with juice
2-3 tsp chilli powder (or to taste, I almost always add more)
a few dashes liquid smoke
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbs green chiles (you’ll find these canned)
Whole Wheat Tortillas or Taco Shells
Ok, I’m going to level with you–even if you’ve never cooked before you can make this. So give it a try. Everyone likes these. 🙂
Take a skillet and heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for one minute. Crumble the tempeh like I showed you yesterday (hold the block and crumble until you’re no longer holding a block) and add it to the pan with the other ingredients. Simmer it for at least ten minutes (I usually let it go for twenty so the tempeh can absorb loads of flavor).
Get your fixin’s ready!
We don’t usually have fake cheese, but that time we did! We do, however, always have salsa and guac, because if you don’t, you are not actually eating a taco. You should be ashamed of yourself! You can also add other stuff (some ideas include diced peppers or onions). A taco is pretty much whatever fixin’s you put on the “meat.”
Assemble and enjoy!
See, a kid could do that. In fact, one did!
Your helper will probably want to assemble some of these, too. The newspaper hat, however, is optional.
Good night loves!
