Taco Bites

I love tacos.  I love parties.  I love tacos at parties.  But, lets be real, they can be messy and can make even a super hot person, not so attractive while being eaten! Well this recipe is perfect party food!!  It shrinks the tacos down into bite sized pieces that really are the perfect party food!  There are two ways to make them, either by using pre-baked (frozen and thawed) mini phyllo cups or Tostito's scoops (it's definitely the cheaper way to go)!

8 oz tempeh, I boil mine for 30 min in my vegan beef broth for extra flavor, then minced
1 pkg Simply Organic Spicy Taco Seasoning
approximately 9 grape tomatoes, quartered
guacamole, store bought or homemade
1/3 Daiya Cheddar Wedge
1/3 Daiya Jalapeno Garlic Havarti Wedge
36 phyllo pastry cups, thawed (or sub in Tostito's scoops if you want to make lots of bites)
Finely shredded lettuce, minced onion, finely chopped olives (optional)

After boiling and mincing the tempeh, put it back into the pan and add the taco seasoning and water.  Cook as directed.

Over a double boiler combine the 2 Daiya Cheese and melt until it's smooth like queso.

To assemble, place a small amount of "queso" into the bottom of the cup/scoop, top with tempeh taco filling, lettuce, onion, olives, (if using), a dollop of guacamole, and a piece of tomato.

Put on a plate and watch them disappear!
