Up your walking taco game with my favorite Way Better Snacks, lean ground turkey taco meat, and a delicious kale slaw topped with all of your favorite fixings!
TEAM. Talk about finding the most epic product on the planet right in your backyard! I am so beyond excited to be partnering with my FAVORITE chips- Way Better Snacks over the next couple of months. WBS is based here in Minneapolis, MN and the Sriracha variation legit changed my life. If you follow me on Snapchat…you know that I don’t go a single day without eating chips. Why? Because every meal deserves a little crunch. That’s right- I pretty much find a way to eat chips with ever meal…even if it’s a Thai Coconut Quinoa Bowl or Kung Pao Chicken. When in doubt add chips. More specifically WBS.
Why do I choose WBS over any other kind of chips?
- Made with flax, chia, and quinoa
- 100% whole grain
- full of flavor!
- I can pronounce EVERY ingredient
I brought a bag of the spicy sriracha kind (because I’m clearly obsessed with this flavor) with us to the Boundary Waters last weekend and my sister almost lost her sh*t at how good these chips are.
I have been a huge fan of the walking taco ever since I had my very first one at a middle school football game. Who ever came up with that idea is a pure genius. The classic recipe calls for chips + meat + cheese + sour cream. Clearly I upped the ante with this recipe because I added a handful of superfoods and of course a better base.
For my protein I chose ground chicken, buy you are more than welcome to use any meat you prefer such as beef or turkey. The meat part of the recipe is super easy because it’s really just sautéed meat with some spices and your favorite salsa. I also added a splash of maple syrup, which is my secret to the most delicious taco/chili meat you’ll ever eat.
The slaw is vinegar based with a touch of lime juice and honey. I used an avocado mayo by Primal Kitchen, which I recently discovered in place of normal mayo. You guys…it’s SO GOOD. Lin and I have experimented with the chipotle variation and NOMMMMM.
A walking taco is quite like a bowl if you ask me. You prep all of the ingredients and then assemble as needed. Per usual…don’t forget the toppings! I went with my classic guacamole, shredded cheese, and our new favorite – Greek yogurt + hot sauce.
