It’s both a blessing and a curse that I cook vegan meals for myself and pretty much no one else. It’s good because I can try using new products in a handful of ways — which is what I have been able to do with Tofurky Chorizo — but bad because I don’t enjoy cooking for one and it can be rough going through an entire package of food by myself.
My latest experiment with Tofurky chorizo was potato & chorizo tacos. Now, this came out of wanting some vegan corned beef hash, but since the chorizo is already spiced as chorizo and I had tortillas, I went with the tacos instead.
This is a really simple recipe. First, I washed and cubed a potato. Then I browned some minced garlic and onion in olive oil, added the potato and about a half a cup of water, and let it cook in a pan until all the water had dried up.
Then, I added some Tofurky chorizo, onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chili powder, and salt. I sauteed the mixture for about 5 minutes.
This was a great savory dish that would go just as well with rice or even by itself. I definitely enjoyed it more than the chorizo alone! –Melissa
Just so you know, I was so turned on by this that I made some similar tacos for dinner tonight. Added a little dab of guac. Delicious!
Awesome!!! Guac sounds delicious. As I was eating, I kept thinking that I wish I had some avocado!!
[…] some of the blogs I follow earlier today, I found some yummy-looking potato and chorizo tacos on Turning Veganese, which looked to be right in my wheelhouse, so I made my own approximation of them and added a dab […]
Girl, your meaty posts are always so delicious looking (from the vegan who used to love being a carnivore)
They taste pretty good, too 😉
