ABOUT THE FLAVOR ORIGIN
Best way to serve tacos is family style with little bowls of all the fresh ingredients laid out for everyone to assemble on their own. This fresh plant-based sausage taco filling is sautéed with garlic, red onion and juicy Apple & Sage Sausage. Warming the soft tacos with the creamy Chao turns them into toasty quesadillas. Fill them up with green leaf lettuce, slices of avocado, cherry tomatoes and crunchy apple slices.
1 ripe avocado
2 tbsp. red onion, finely minced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ tsp. sea salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup red onion, finely diced
4 Field Roast Spicy Mexican Chipotle Plant-Based Sausages
8 5” soft flour tortillas
1 cup Chao Shreds Mexican Style Blend
1 cup spicy salsa
1 fresh or pickled jalapeno, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 lime, cut into wedges
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
For the guacamole, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado into a bowl and mash lightly with a fork. Add the red onion, garlic, lime, salt, cayenne and cilantro, stirring to combine. Set aside, covered with plastic wrap, until ready to serve.
For the taco filling, heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and red onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes until softened and fragrant. Remove the skillet from the heat and crumble in the Field Roast Spicy Mexican Chipotle Plant-Based Sausage. Return to the heat, stir to combine with a wooden spoon, and cook for 5 minutes until sausage is evenly brown and heated through.
Lay the soft flour tortillas out onto a baking sheet and sprinkle the Chao Shreds Mexican style blend evenly over each one. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 3 to 4 minutes until the tortillas are warm and the Chao Shreds are softened and beginning to melt.
To serve, pile all the ingredients into bowls and let everybody build their own tacos by placing a generous portion of the spicy taco filling in a warmed tortilla. Top with spoonfuls of guacamole and spicy salsa. Sprinkle with cilantro and slices of jalapeno; squeeze fresh lime over top. Fold up the soft taco and enjoy while hot.
