Beefless Taco Night!

I recently purchased some Maple Leaf  lean ground chicken for dirt cheap (free, actually- yay coupons), so naturally Rich and I had to have TACO NIGHT. For obvious reasons he used meatless ground, which just happened to be the chick'n variety.

Aw, it's kind of like we're eating the same thing!

Except mine used to be breathing and alive and his is made from a plant...which used to also breathe and be  alive. Hm, what I'm getting to is...blood vs. no blood.

Okay I'm done now. Read on.

We got all the goodies prepped and even made tortillas from scratch! I used this recipe, because it didn't call for lard and it was simple. I made the dough, rolled them into circles flat and Rich stood over the stove, cooking each wrap to perfection. Go team work! 

Our toppings included: diced tomatoes, green onions, shredded ice berg lettuce, grated carrots (which looked like orange cheddar to me, so I tried to pretend it was), sliced radishes, hummus, taco sauce (that came with the hard shell taco kit), some green salsa and sour cream for me! Basically everything we had in the fridge or cupboard. There was guacamole somewhere in the freezer, but I forgot about it. Whoops. 

Above, is Rich's "taco supreme". Basically a hard taco shell wrapped in a tortilla, using hummus as food mortar. Apparently it was delicious, because he made a second one! Double carb-ing as much as possible, lucky man. Trying to reach that 5,000 calorie/day goal, are we?!

I'd be lying if I told you this was horrendous and not at all tasty. I'd also be lying if I denied eating like, five, maybe six of these babies filled to the brim.

Hooray for Old El Paso taco kits! Taco nights wouldn't be the same without your crunchy shells. 

P.S. Those shredded carrots really do look like cheese, am I right??
