Roasted Butternut Squash ======================== Vegan ----- The great thing about roasting butternut squash is that you just throw the whole squash into the oven, forget about it for about an hour, and the cooking is all self-contained - no prep (no need to chop up an uncooked gourd), no other ingredients and no messy dishes afterward. __Ingredients__ * Whole Butternut Squash * Chili powder (optional) __Directions__ 1. Roast a whole butternut squash in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes to an hour until it is nice and soft. 2. Cut open the squash, scoop out the seeds and discard the peel. Cut into bite-sized pieces and the squash is ready to go. No seasoning is necessary, but the sweet buttery flavor of the squash is pretty tasty with chili powder. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Sweet Potato and Apple Hash =========================== Sweet potatoes are my go-to taco punch-up. I was going my normal route of making small (1/4" or so) cubes of sweet potatoes when I thought: Hey, it's fall, I'm going to add an apple in there. Fuck yes. * 2 Small sweet potatoes (you'd be amazed how little sweet potato you need for tacos) * 1 Small apple * One can diced green chilis * A couple pinches of chili powder * A squeeze of honey * Pat o' butter Mix this all into a pan, with about 1/4 cup of water, and boil it all up until the water goes away, toss in the butter, and continue to pan-fry until things get a little browned. tags: vegetarian

Basic Dry Rub ================= This is a great, versatile recipe to use as a taco seasoning or as a dry rub for the protein of your choice. Equally at home in the skillet, oven, stovetop, or smoker. * 2 Tbs Cumin * 2 Tbs Chili Powder * 1 Tbs Salt * 1 Tbs Garlic Powder * 2 tsp Black Pepper * 1 tsp Chipotle Powder Stir to combine and apply liberally. tags: vegetarian, vegan

Hard Corn Shells (Traditional; US) ====================== Mistakenly thought by many to be traditionally Mexican, hard shells were actually popularized in the US in the mid-20th century. While they can certainly be made at home (if you have access to a deep-fryer), the best method of obtaining hard taco shells is to head to the grocery store. If you line them with a lettuce leaf rather than using chopped lettuce, when the shell cracks you won't lose the contents into your lap. tags: vegetarian
