I grew up a native Southern California girl, loving the outdoors— and the tastes of good Southern Californian Mexican American cuisine. My all-time favorite, anytime, for grab n’ go is a hearty, boldly flavored taco. Hands down, there’s something so satisfying about biting into an authentic handmade taco filled with grilled marinated meats, succulent shrimp and fish and then topped with naturally fresh and organic ingredients of cool cilantro, crisp romaine, roasted tomato salsas and robust cheeses. As my love for tacos grew, and my curiosity about incorporating various flavors and textures of the healthy and exotic kind evolved, I created a vegan taco so delicious it not only fooled my friends, but will fool yours as well.
