Taco Swell

Last night, Steve and I had the first of what I hope will be many taco nights!!
We started off with crispy blue corn tortilla shells.... then filled
them with Mexican-spiced tempeh with cilantro and lime....
Then, for the veggies, we had a fuuuuullll spread! We had avocado
that Steve had gotten in Mexico on a rock climbing trip (soooo creamy soooo good!), red onion, tomato, shredded cabbage, and a squeeeeeeeze of fresh lime juice--the limes were also from Mexico! My boyfriend went to Mexico and all he brought me back were these amazing avocados and limes...hmmmm...... :)
And, of course, to top it all off we had some spicy salsa verde and Tofutti Sour Supreme! That stuff is dangerous it is so delicious!!
We had some "Spanish" quinoa for our side dish, loaded with tomatoes, garlic, and spices (cayenne, cumin, coriander, chili powder, paprika, cilantro...). I have a mild obsession with quinoa. no big deal.
I think this taco night thing will have to become a new tradition...
Muy bueno!!! :)
