TVP Tacos

Here are the TVP Tacos I've been promising to my friends.  I've invited dear Chef to guest blog since he's the one who made this delicious awesomeness possible.  :)

Start off putting 2 Cups TVP into a largeish bowl and set aside.

Measure 1/4 Cup Kitchen Bouquet in a 2 Cup (or larger measuring cup)

Top off the liquid to 2 Cups with water

mix in 1/3 Cup taco seasoning.  Commercial works (I will add a recipe soon for mine... much cheaper)
and bring to a boil.

While you are waiting for the juice to boil, it is a good time to prep your toppings. We go with red leaf lettuce, limes, avocado, onions, tomatoes, black beans, peppers, green onions, olives and what ever else sounds good that night.... oh yeah tortillas are a must.

When the juice boils, slowly add it to the TVP while mixing.  You want to be sure to get all the TVP wet.

Let the TVP sit for 5-10 minutes, just until it has no crunch left, but is still nice and hot.


I hope you all like it as much as we have!
