Walnut Meat Taco’s

Taco’s always have been one of my favorites. With the multiple variations & styles you can eat them with I wanted to test something new with these Walnut Meat ones!

Traditionally ground beef or ground turkey is the staple for taco’s. However using walnut’s for a meat replacement is one of the best things ever. I realized people care more

about the seasonings & the texture more then actually meat itself. That’s why the walnut meat is so clutch.
