Daiya™ Mac N Cheese was experienced. And, of course, it couldn’t be just Mac N Cheese. The Diaya™ product was infused with Mexican-style ingredients. Away from the Mac N Cheese, Mexballs were created.
The Mexballs were a combination of Almond Milk, Lightlife™ ‘sausage’ & ‘beef’, (cooked) Quinoa, Scallions, Corn, Cilantro, (Italian-style) Breadcrumbs, Garlic, Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder and Cayenne. A few more Breadcrumbs were added after mixing to obtain the correct consistency. After balls were molded, baking carefully took place.
Bean Sauce was mixed and warmed. The Sauce consisted of Almond Milk, (Vegetarian) Refried Beans, Ⓥ Chorizo, Pico de Gallo, Corn and Seasonings.
The Mac N Cheese was prepared just as the package suggested, however, after draining the Whole Wheat Pasta, Bean Sauce, Noodles, Wild Rice, Green Peppers, Jalapeños, Cilantro and Daiya™ Cheese Sauce were tossed together.
Guacamole was plated like a bed of garnishing greens before a Mexball and a sliced Burrito were added to the assortment.
A Bean Sauce was monumentally constructed infusing Chipotle Peppers with Refried Beans, Almond Milk, Tofurky™ Chorizo, Roasted Corn and Pico de Gallo with careful effort before evolving ever so slightly into a separate Bean Dip. Sliced Cheican (Gardein™ Scappolini), Black Beans, Onion, Avocado and Scallions were added for the Dip.
Pizza Dough was slapped with Bean Sauce on half before being topped generously with Daiya, Spinach, Onion, Tomato, Avocado, Olive and Cheican Strips. The unused dough was folded onto sealing these Taco ingredients ever so tight. Baked to a slight color the Calzoni was topped and baked with more Daiya on top. The Calzoni was sliced and served with the Bean Dip.
Escaping from a sometimes meat & dairy substitute overload, these Tacos exclude any of that. Chunky Guacamole and lightly roasted Potatoes are ever gratifying and truly meaty enough for any Taco lover.

The chopped Potatoes, Corn and seasonings were tossed and roasted before being tossed with Iceberg Lettuce and chunky Guacamole. The Corn Tortillas were warmed by flame, stuffed with the animal-free Potatoes and topped with chopped Tomatoes.
I don’t know if a Taco could be any easier to prepare. And at $1.12 per serving, I don’t know how much more economical a hearty & healthy Taco could be.
