Chipotle Hummus & Fajita Veggie Taco Salad Bowls

I’ve come up with some pretty awesome and different flavors since I sort of took over the kitchen, but even now after all of them my family still prefers the classics. I think one of the family’s favorites will always be anything and everything that can be made in a tortilla and slathered in guac (or super hot sauce in my brother’s case).


Anyway, the other day was taco tuesday, or rather taco thursday. and as always I made a bazillion tortillas to go with because there’s only like one brand available to buy here and it’s stuffed with preservatives and tastes awful. I’m not gonna lie, even though I could (and I do) spend all day in the kitchen, rolling out lots and lots of tortillas after prepping all of the toppings isn’t my favorite thing to do. Everyone loves them so much though so I lovingly work through it and think about lean and muscular arms.

I thought I’d have a little fun this time and make some of them into taco bowls and then make some killer taco salads. It’s just more fun that way don’t you think?

Making everything for tacos with a big group also takes up a lot of time as you might have guessed which doesn’t leave much time for food photography. I’m gonna let you all in on a little secret……..I often photograph leftovers (shrugs guiltily). Go ahead and judge and then get over it because you know what? This crazy household survives on leftovers and there are some things that are better next day.

Hummus, for instance, gets way better as the flavors meld. This chipotle hummus definitely did. Oh. and I know I just made it sound like these are a ton of work but they are really easy. You probably live where you can buy good quality tortillas and probably aren’t feeding an army like mine. As for the toppings, anything can go on these beauties. I think the hummus was perfect for the job and I totally recommend the fajita veggies but again, anything goes.

I’d love to know what you put on yours!
