View Full Version : Walnut Taco Meat help please?

Hi rawbies! I made this yesterday and it was just way too spicy and salty for me. Any ideas on how to still use it? - how to "dilute" it? I thought about making another one, minus the salt and spices and just putting the two together but thought I'd ask you out there.:)

I haven't made it, so am not really sure what all goes in the recipe or how it is put together, but maybe try soaking it in water to remove some of the spices? You might then have to dehydrate it a bit.
I don't think adding some plain stuff to it would work if it has a chunky texture because the spices would stick to the chunks. But if it is more like a pate, then that might work.

sorry I repeated myself here.
juliebove Thanks for the suggestions. Lots of rawbies rave about this walnut taco meat and so I was really surprised that I didn't like it.. maybe I did something wrong.

Just throwing this recipe out there because I didn't know if this is the one you used or not... I loved it and to me it wasn't spicy enough so I added some heat...
Anyway, maybe you could mash an avocado and add to the mix to make some sort of filling for enchiladas or burritos; I don't know- I was just thinking with avocados having a creamy texture it might take mellow out some of the heat. Hopefully someone will have a good idea for you:)
