This recipe is one of my all-time favorites for freezer meal prepping!
It is made in a flash with cauliflower, walnuts, chipotles, spices, and baked into a crumbly mixture that resembles taco meat so closely that no one will notice that it’s meatless!
But besides being easy to make, I love this recipe because of how it freezer. You can stick it in a bag or a bowl, and it will stay soft enough to scoop out one serving at a time – just enough for a single-serve batch of tacos, burritos, nachos, or a Tex-Mex style rice bowl.
How To Make Freezer Cauliflower Walnut Taco Meat
Blend everything up in your food processor, spread it on a baking sheet, and bake.
Pack it into a container and freezer it for later.
And there you go! Now you can scoop out one serving (or more) at a time, straight from the freezer, and reheat it in a skillet to get a nice little crispiness to it. If you want it to resemble more of a saucy taco meat, just add a little water.
