Bold flavor and totally meatless meal that comes together in minutes.
Griddle tacos are my absolute favorite thing to eat. Absolute. It certainly doesn’t hurt that I love avocado, tomato, cilantro, and all the fun toppings that go on top of a griddle taco. But let’s talk about what goes inside it for a minute.
Meat. Why do we love meat so much? Meat is basically the combination of amino acids, fats, trace carbohydrates and minerals, and lots of water that combined give us chew, resistance, and variation. And that is what we love.
So what if you could get all those same things but not from a cow, or a chicken, or some other source of meat? What if you could get that from a plant?
That is what BeyondMeat offers. It offers the meat from the future. Meat from plants. And it is good!
I made these griddle tacos using BeyondMeat crumbles. BeyondMeat crumbles are really great tasting, make the perfect substitute for meat, and are full of good for you things. If you love cooking with a meat alternative you need to give these a try.

I found the crumbles in the frozen section of the store for about $5.49/11 oz bag. My local store did not have any in when I went in to visit, but I asked them to order them for me, and they did. Very simple to do. You can find out if your store has them here: Store Locator
I created an amazing avocado crema to top them with, and then used fresh tomatoes, cilantro, and some green onion. They were delicious. And I did not even miss the meat.

I have always been a little weary of meat substitutes even though they are a healthy alternatives to meat because of a bad experience 10+ years ago with a nasty veggie burger that tasted like cardboard, but this was amazing. I did not tell my kids at all, and not a single one of them noticed a difference. No complaints, and so much better for them. I was thrilled. I am definitely converted to the BeyondMeat way. And I love their mission.
