My Love for Tacos
I think it is about time I pay a fair tribute to my life long love of tacos.
When I was a little girl, on the rare occasion that my mom would ask my sister and I what we would like for dinner, my answer was always “TACOS” – shouted with enthusiasm.
Of course, my little sister would always scream “MEATLOAF”!
And for our entire childhood: I hated meatloaf, and she hated tacos.
I’ve never outgrown my love for tacos. Now that I am in my own home with a family of my own, I get to decide what is for dinner.
And yep, you guessed it, at least once a week it is tacos.
But now that I am a working mom with a family of my own, I fully realize the dread that can come with making dinner after a long day of work.
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Except… I’m starving and everyone still needs to eat.
Vegetarian Hummus Tacos
May I present to you (drum roll please) Vegetarian Hummus Tacos. The greatest 10-minute dinner you will ever make.
Seriously, if you prep all of the ingredients ahead of time, it actually takes less than 10 minutes to prepare (and even eat).
The key is making sure that your ingredients are all prepped ahead of time.
Yes, I know, you’re thinking Emilyyyy, ain’t nobody got time for that either.
But I am telling you, if you can sacrifice 30 minutes to get all of the fresh ingredients washed and cut up, you will have a quick and easy meal all week long.
I actually have to give credit to my husband for this recipe.
Yep, my husband: the meat and potatoes, vegan-hating, back yard hunting manliest man came up with the idea for these Vegetarian Hummus Tacos.
So when I say this is a meal that your carnivorous family won’t turn their noses up at, I actually really mean that.
But you will be pleasantly surprised when you see how filling and delicious the hummus makes these tacos.
