OK – I am not sure what the weather is like where you are but here in LA – it is hot as a muthafuckah! It is pushing 100 degrees! Just brutal. I don’t have AC & cooking is just impossible in this weather. So – I whipped up these cool & vegan bad boys! They are kind of like a taco-wrap hybrid. I used these little flour tortillas – right from their home in the cool of my fridge. I am not positive they are vegan – so if you are vegan – use a tortilla you know suits your diet.
And I used that Beyond Meat vegan chicken. The coupon above is good until the end of May 2014 – so print a few out & go get some of this awesome stuff! If you let it sit on the counter a few minutes – it will defrost enough so that you can cube it up & by the time this all comes together – the chicken is thawed completely but still CHILLED! Perfect!
