15 Minutes of Crema Tacos

Ingredients:

1 8 oz package daring Cajun pieces
1 avocado, diced
1 tbsp vegan mayonnaise
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 8 oz package daring Cajun Pieces, thawed
6 to 9 flour or corn tortillas (3 per person)
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
3/4 cup diced cherry tomatoes
Juice of one lime
Salt & pepper
Parsley or cilantro, for garnish

  2. Warm tortillas by placing them in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds, or toasting them directly on the grates of your gas stove for 10 to 15 seconds per side until soft and slightly charred. Wrap in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.

  3. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat and add vegetable oil. Place thawed daring Cajun Pieces on a cutting board. Using two forks, shred each piece into smaller strands. When the skillet is hot, add the shredded daring to the skillet in one even layer and let it cook, undisturbed, for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Stir the shredded daring and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

  4. To assemble tacos, spread a layer of the avocado crema on the base of each tortilla. Top with the shredded daring, lettuce, tomatoes, another generous drizzle of crema and a sprinkling of parsley or cilantro, if using. Serve hot (with lime wedges, if desired).
