Full disclosure: I'm a bad New Englander and had no idea the Pats were in the playoffs (I know), and just heard they are headed to the championship. Yay. But I do love me some vegan comfort food and am all for the tailgating dishes and game day apps. I'll come for the food but please don't make we watch the game. Just being honest. Also being honest: this layered taco cake would be an amazing addition for your game day snack fest. This recipe is vegan but you could easily swap vegan cheese for real cheese if you rather. NBD.
This taco cake features the spicy bold flavors of Rio Luna Organic Peppers. Their Diced Green Chiles give this simple taco filling a delicious depth of flavor with a kick. The base of the filling is an earthy tofu-shiitake mushroom mince to which beans, corn, tomatoes and Mexican spices are added. The spicy vegan taco filling is then layered between dry toasted flour tortillas and loaded with cheese and Rio Luna Nacho Sliced Jalapeños for extra heat to create a festive taco cake that is sure to please all the fans at your Game Day viewing party. I like to serve it with healthy dollops of fresh made guacamole and salsa, but sour cream or thick coconut yogurt are also v. good additions.
Rio Luna works with organic farmers who practice sustainable growing methods like drip irrigation, recycling initiatives and crop rotation to cultivate their certified organic and non-GMO peppers, which also happen to be fat-free, cholesterol free, low calorie and Kosher. Visit Rio Luna for coupons to purchase their organic peppers at Kroger or Whole Foods so you can add a kick of heat to your meals and take flavors to new heights!
I hope your team wins, but even if they don't you'll still have had a winning game day feast with this savory, spicy taco cake!
