When Travis came home for lunch today, we set up a whole taco assembly line in the kitchen. He loved the hands-on nature of this recipe, care of his final issue of High Five magazine.
Ahead of time, I cooked a package of Gardein chick’n strips, and let cool. Travis helped shred the chicken, and we sprinkled it with 1 teaspoon taco seasoning. Microwave for 1 minute to rewarm.
Meanwhile, warm up hard taco shells according to package directions. Travis then got to hone his knife skills; together we chopped a tomato and a little lettuce.
Time to assemble! We made a big line with everything.
- Gardein chick’n
- Shredded Daiya cheddar
- Non-dairy sour cream
- Mild salsa
Travis loved it! We made one version that was a stuffed taco and one that was more like nachos.
If your kids don’t like Gardein chick’n, try the recipe using black beans and roasted sweet potatoes as the base instead.
