Crispy Chick’n Tacos


I LOVE mexican cuisine.  Even in utero my mom craved mexican on a regular basis.  I have been learning how to veganize my favorite mexican dishes.


  • Canola Oil
  • Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders
  • Favorite Store Bought Taco Seasoning (or make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning)
  • Garden of Eatin’™ Blue Corn Taco Shells (or favorite Crispy Taco Shells)
  • Fresh Tomatoes
  • Fresh Organic Mixed Greens
  • Salsa and/or Taco Sauce
  • Matchstick Carrots (or Daiya Cheddar Style Shreds)
  • Avocado or Homemade Guacamole (optional)
  • Cilantro (optional)
  • Vegan Sour Cream (optional)
Spritz Crispy Tenders with Canola Oil and then coat with Taco Seasoning and bake according to package instructions.  While Crispy Tenders are cooking, dice up tomatoes, chop up mixed greens, dice up avocado (or make Homemade Guacamole), and chop up fresh cilantro.  Set up taco building station with bowl of tomatoes, bowl of mixed greens, salsa/taco sauce, carrots (or vegan cheese), avocado, cilantro and vegan sour cream.
Place shells on a pan and cook according to instructions.
When Crispy Tenders are done, cut each one in half.  Place in bowl and put on taco building station.
Put taco shells in a basket and add to taco building station.  Have everyone build their own tacos.

About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
