I made Kim Kardashian's favorite plant-based tacos and I was surprised by how much I liked them

Summary List Placement

There's a lengthy list of spices, as well as other ingredients, you'll need to make Kim's favorite tacos.

For the tacos, you'll need onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, oregano, avocado oil, agave, organic ketchup, gluten-free tortillas, and Beyond Meat ground beef.

You can view the full recipe and instructions here.

The recipe also calls for toppings.

The recipe recommended diced tomato, white onion, vegan cheddar cheese shreds, dairy-free sour cream, and shredded lettuce.

I started by adding the ground "beef" to a pan with a tablespoon of hot olive oil.

I crumbled up the vegan beef with a wooden spatula while I prepared the spices.

The recipe calls for two packages of Beyond Meat to make 16 tacos.

I was only cooking for three people, so I cut the recipe in half. 

As the beef was cooking, I was surprised by how similar it looked to real meat.

After adding the agave and ketchup, the meat took on a sweet, meat-like aroma. While I've eaten Beyond Meat burgers in the past, I've never cooked with it.

Kardashian, who mostly eats a plant-based diet, said she prefers the taste of the vegan meat to real meat.

I cooked the meat down until all the water had evaporated from the pan.

Then, I went about assembling my toppings.

I poured some of the Violife Just Like cheddar shreds into a bowl.

I've never eaten vegan cheese before, so I was anxious to see how they would work in the tacos.

I chopped up half of a white onion to add to the tacos.

I diced the onion into small pieces and set them aside for later.

I also diced up half of an heirloom tomato.

You can also use a red tomato or salsa if you want your tacos to have more of a kick.

Per Kardashian's recommendation, I also added dairy-free sour cream to my tacos.

The consistency was very different from regular sour cream.

It was slightly gloopy in consistency, almost like yogurt rather than sour cream.

However, I would soon come to find out it worked as a dairy-free alternative on the tacos.

Kardashian and her four children all follow a plant-based, gluten-free diet.

For the tacos, I got gluten-free tortillas, which are made with cassava flour. The tortillas are also dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan.

I poured a tablespoon of the avocado oil into a separate pan and added my first tortilla.

In the video showing her making the recipe, Kardashian says that she usually discards the first tortilla because it soaks up a lot of the oil. When heating up the first tortilla, I ran into the same issue. It quickly became soggy and oily, so I decided to throw it away. 

My second tortilla came out a lot crispier.

At first glance, I really couldn't tell the difference between these gluten-free tortillas and the flour tortillas I usually use for tacos.

I made six tacos to feed three people.

Once the tortillas had turned slightly golden brown, I placed them on top of a plate with a paper towel laid down to soak up any extra oil.

Then, it was time to assemble my plant-based tacos.

I first added the cooked and seasoned ground beef to the tortilla, followed by the shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and sour cream.

This was a super easy meal, perfect for after-work dinner.

I also liked how you could really customize the toppings to your preferences and how there was nothing out-of-the-box — you could find every ingredient in your local grocery store, and I already owned all the spices needed for the taco meat. 

The tacos were super flavorful and filling.

I thought the meat substitute was surprisingly juicy, and the seasoning really made it taste like ground taco meat I've had in the past.

As many people are looking to eat less red meat, this seemed like a great option for a plant-based meal that is still comforting and delicious.

I would definitely make these Kardashian-approved tacos again. However, next time I might switch up the toppings: A dash of hot sauce, chipotle aioli, or salsa would add a ton of flavor.
