Munchie Monday: Taco Crumbles in Bean Burrito

In trying to eat more plant-based, I have been searching for products that are sort of reminiscent of the meat world I remember.  One of those products we have tried, and liked, so we ordered more, were the Taco Crumbles from Butler Foods.  These are really very very acceptable replacements for burger in tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc.

We planned to have tacos for supper the other day.  While the Taco Crumbles re-hydrated for 8 minutes I sauteed a large chopped onion and a package of chopped mushrooms until soft.  When ready I added the Taco Crumbles then put them into whole wheat flour tortillas on top of non-fat refried beans.  Even Dear One liked them, though he only ate one.  He probably would not have eaten it if he knew there were (VERY FINELY) chopped mushrooms in it. I thought they gave a bit more meaty flavor.

This picture shows the conglomeration in the pan.  Tasty.  Slightly spicy.  The bag of Crumbles made enough so I could make three meals for the two of us.
