What’s a Taco Tuesday without Tacos? Pretty boring I’d say – right? 😉
Sometimes we’re all looking for a pretty awesome meatless recipe that we can incorporate into dinner meals – because face it… when you have a big family, eating meat every night is out of the question.
As much as I love a big juicy steak or hamburger, it’s not realistic for us to have them on the grill every night – unless you really have a great relationship with a local farmer that raises pastured beef or poultry. It really is hard to know what you are buying in store is high quality.
(Because face it, unless you get it from a local farmer, it probably isn’t the best — even organic meat is raised in a confined farm environment).
Say hello to these beautiful Chipotle Lime Cauliflower Tacos – oh SO delicious! Wrapping them in a fiery chipotle sauce and roasting on a baking sheet brings out such a tremendous flavor – you’ll almost wonder why you haven’t made these before today.
Our CSA share has been overflowing with cauliflower for the last several weeks – use it to make Mexican Cauliflower Rice, or toss with a smoky chipotle sauce made with honey, lime juice, and chipotles in adobo before roasting on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes.
Serve warm in corn tortillas, and top with mozzarella or queso fresco, green onion, cilantro, sour cream and additional hot sauce.
The only problem you might have is that your family might go back for seconds, and thirds… leaving you wishing you would have made more. 😉
Though our youngest kids slept through these fiery Chipotle Lime Cauliflower Tacos, our older 3 mentioned that they were the best gourmet tacos “yet” (get that? Gourmet!) – leaving you some hope that your kids might love them just as much as ours.
The Mr. happened to love them so much that he didn’t just go back for a second helping, but a third helping at that (whoa – right??!!), mentioning that I could make these whenever “I want” .. he would be sure to have room to shovel them in. 😉
