Yes, these tacos are completely vegan! Though the Mexican-seasoned mushrooms, chickpeas, and walnuts have an uncanny resemblance to real chorizo (and it tastes pretty close, too!).

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the next ten ingredients (through cinnamon).

  • For vegan chorizo, in a food processor combine the cooled mushrooms, the chickpeas, and walnuts; pulse until ingredients are chopped. Add chickpea mixture to spice mixture in the bowl. Add lime juice and stir well to combine. Let stand 20 minutes.

  • Heat the remaining 2 Tbsp. of oil in the same skillet over medium-high. Add the vegan chorizo to the skillet, spreading evenly. Cook 2 minutes without stirring. Stir the chorizo and cook 4 to 5 minutes more or until browned and heated through, stirring occasionally.

  • Serve vegan chorizo in warmed tortillas topped with finely chopped onions, cilantro, and lime wedges.

Probably won't make again because MorningStar Farms makes an excellent vegetarian chorizo crumble.
