Walnut Tacos with Cashew “Sour Cream”

DSC_0272

At the Superbowl party we attended two weekends ago our friend made Walnut Tacos. Yes, I know it sounds weird, but man were they good. Trust me…you would never know you weren’t eating a real taco πŸ™‚

Anyhow, for the family birthday party this past weekend, I was asked to bring an appetizer. Instantly, I knew I had to make these tacos myself and bring them to share with my family. At first I got a few odd looks but once they each took a bite they were all (well most) pleased and really liked them πŸ™‚ I couldn’t make the tacos fast enough. Absolutely no leftovers. Highly recommend giving these a try if you are looking for an appetizer or a light dinner! Enjoy!
