I’ve been in a dinner funk lately. I don’t want to clean the kitchen. I don’t want to chop any veggies or even go to the grocery store to buy them. I just want an extra delicious dinner waiting for me when I get home. Asking too much?
Apparently the only thing I have actually been buying at the store lately is cauliflower, because my fridge is overflowing with it. After a complicated day, I wanted a super simple meal. Lots of flavor, minimal ingredients (obviously, because my cupboards are pretty bare). I bought a package of corn tortillas a little while ago and have been obsessed with making taquitos on the stove, so taquitos it was!
We definitely had some reservations about eating what’s basically a tube of cauliflower, but it’s crazy delicious. All of the complex, Mexican-y flavor I want, with the vegetable goodness I actually need. Serve with some guac and sour cream / Greek yogurt and you’re gonna have a good time. Bonus, when I was cooking the cauliflower it looked like I had ground turkey mixed in. It definitely didn’t taste like turkey (err, or at least what I imagine turkey tastes like) but if you have anyone in your family that thinks it isn’t a meal if it doesn’t have meat, at least they won’t know until they bite into their dinner. <– psst, if you think that, then I haven’t eaten a meal since 2001.
If 16 taquitos is too many for you, refrigerate or freeze the filling and make the rest later. The filling also makes a tasty side dish.
