TVP Taco Filling //Oil Free & Vegan

If you haven't noticed, I love Mexican food and when I discovered TVP, it was life changing. TVP stands for textured vegetable protein. It's used in the place of beef or pork. It takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. 

You can make taco's, nacho's and lot's of other things with this recipe. 

This recipe is not only easy but it's super quick. The longest part is probably measuring everything out. 

Let's get to it. Here is what you will need. 
1 cup of boiled water
1 cup of TVP
1 tbsp of chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Boil the water and remove from the heat. Add the spices and seasonings. Whisk to make sure everything is disolved. You do want any clumps of onion or garlic powder in there. 

Add the TVP and stir to combine. Let it sit for about five minutes and all of the liquid will be absorbed by the TVP. 

Much healthier and way faster. Enjoy!!
