Such a great meat alternative for those Taco Tuesdays or Meatless Mondays! My family now prefers this over ground beef. Bonus: no heating up the oven or stove!

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes packed in oil
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin or to taste
  • pinch red pepper flakes or more for heat
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp salt to taste, start with 1/4.  If using salted nuts, you may not need salt!
  • 2-4 tbsp olive oil (or hemp, or flax, etc)
