Heart Healthy GOOP Tacos ( Vegetarian and Vegan friendly! - or if you prefer dairy and meat you can always substitute according to your taste).  This recipe is simple and takes only 20 minutes to make and its delicious!

• 1 packet Garlic Chipotle Lime Garli Goop
• 1 bag or container of meatless "ground meat" * substitute ground beef, pork, or chicken according to your preference
• 1 small can tomato sauce
• 1 tub Tofutti (non-dairy) sour cream - or real sour cream if you prefer
• 4 oz jar Garlic Festival Spicy Salsa
• 2 cups crunchy shredded lettuce
• your favorite Corn tortillas


• Empty bag/container of meatless "ground meat" into a saute pan over medium heat. Then, in a separate bowl mix one can tomato sauce with 1/2 of the Garlic Chipotle Lime Garli Goop packet (save the other half for later step).  Add mixture to saucepan and cook on medium until hot, stir frequently.

Empty one cup sour cream in a  small mixing bowl - you can eyeball this amount. Mix the remaining 1/2 packet of Garli Goop with the sour cream. Set aside and use later to top your tacos.

Heat up your corn tortillas as desired (microwave, stove, oven)

When the taco "meat" is done sauteing, assemble your taco...use about 1/4 cup of "meat", one generous spoonful of Garlic Festival Foods Spicy salsa, another generous spoonful of sour cream mixture.  Top with shredded lettuce. 

• For additional flavor you can add a few sliced up Garlic Jalepe├▒o Stuffed Olives into the taco.
