Prep time 15mins
Cook time 2mins
Serves or Makes: 5


  • 1/ 4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/ 2 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 small head cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • Handful mushrooms
  • 1/ 2 onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • Taco seasoning, To Taste
  • 3/ 4 cup water
  • 1 bag tortilla chips, of choice
  • Toppings of choice, such as: pico de gallo, avocado, tomatoes, green onions, cilantro and dairy-free cheese


  • Step 1

    In a food processor combine cashews and walnuts until a meal starts to form. Then transfer the nut mixture to a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Going back to your processor, add in the cauliflower, mushrooms, onion pieces, carrot, and garlic cloves.

  • Step 3

    Pulse ingredients until everything is chopped well, but be careful not to over-process. *You don’t want your mixture turned into a veggie mush; you definitely still want it to be chunky, or "meaty," if you will.

  • Step 4

    Next, in a large skillet cook the chopped/processed vegetable mixture until vegetables are cooked through and moisture has evaporated.

  • Step 5

    Reduce heat and add nut mixture to skillet. Cook for an additional couple of minutes.

  • Step 6

    Add taco seasoning to skillet and incorporate well, until “meat” is well coated.

  • Step 7

    Then add in water. Simmer on low, covered for 5 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat when done.

  • Step 8

    Arrange tortilla chips in an oven-proof dish or skillet (I love my @staub_usa Fry Pan)

  • Step 9

    Top chips with some of your "meat" mixture, and sprinkle with a bit of cheese. Bake a couple minutes until cheese is just melted.

  • Step 10

    Remove from oven and top with additional toppings, as desired and additional layers of “meat” and cheese.
