Not going to lie I was skeptical about trying this product but I was shocked at how good it tasted. The flavors were good and surprisingly the texture was exactly like meat. The tacos were a bit dry, I did not have the correct cheese on hand so I used cheddar cheese. Delicious! Definitely going to make this again as we are trying to eat healthier and less ground beef. Thank you for a wonderful recipe! Read More

This was my first time to try Impossible burger and it was quite impressive. Not only in flavor but in texture as well. I have tried the other popular brand and Impossible wins hands down! I salted as I went and ended up only adding a teaspoon. I used street taco size tortillas and went with flour but will go back to corn next time since that is how they serve them in my area and what we prefer. My husband and I are big meat eaters and big taco eaters and we both agreed this is one we will be making again. Read More

These were delicious! I added the onion, salt and cumin to the pan at the same time as the Impossible™ burger and only added the garlic during the last minute, so it wouldn't get bitter. My family also prefers yellow corn tortillas, so I used those in place of the flour tortillas. Other than those minor adjustments, I made as directed. We all loved them! Our 20 year old son has recently decided that he no longer wants to eat any meat, so I can see that these will become a regular in our meal rotation! Read More

A nice twist on street tacos - one of my favorite foods that I'm so tempted to get every time I drive by one of the many taco trucks in town! The Impossible burger will definitely fool the biggest carnivore in your life! I sauteed the "meat" in some olive oil (instead of dry in the pan) for 5 minutes before adding in the onion, and then added in the garlic during the last minute. 10 minutes total was perfect. Because the "meat" is a little more dry than real beef, next time I would top the tacos off with one of the traditional street taco sauces like salsa verde or salsa roja. I only used 1 teaspoon of salt and that was plenty... 1.5 teaspoons would have been too salty for me. I also used street taco sized (mini) tortillas (instead of medium size) to keep things more authentic. Bonus, you end up with 10-12 tacos instead of 6! I prefer corn tortillas, but went with the flour tortillas to make it as written. Next time I would omit the tomato and just do traditional cilantro and onion. Coming from a big meat eater, I would definitely make these again! Read More

I wasn't sure what to expect with these tacos, but I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked them. I added some chili powder to the seasoning and used corn tortillas instead of flour. I would make these again! Read More

My youngest son loves trying out plant-based options and this was my first time working with Impossible Burger. I thought these tacos were delicious! The simple seasonings made it taste like regular taco meat. And the consistency was very close to ground beef. The simple and fresh toppings (tomato, cilantro and a squeeze of lime) were the perfect finishing touch. It was a quick and easy recipe that I will absolutely be making again. My son was impressed!

Definitely, as other readers said, add fat when cooking the Impossible Burger (I recommend ghee or olive oil and additional minced garlic). While our family are definitely meat-eaters (I'd make my tacos most often with venison or grass-fed beef), these are a great option for serving guests with food sensitivities or preferences. I used cauliflower flatbreads which are a bit smaller, which made for perfect three-bite tacos, perfect for a taco bar! Definitely use the recommended cheese for authentic street taco vibes, (took us right back to Taco Bus in St. Pete, Florida!) and lots of lime! Read More

Fantastic! The Impossible Burger cooked up wonderfully and has such great flavor! I used the little street taco tortillas and they were gone in a flash! I omitted the onion and used parsley instead of cilantro. We loved these and will make again for taco Tuesday or any day! Read More
