In your wildest dreams, did you ever think you could eat something (Taco Bell inspired) and think it was healthy…. ish? Well step right up and get your mouth ready to salivate over this taco bell inspired favorite! Drum roll please….. We present to you, the Impossible Meat Cheesy Gordita Crunch. The only thing we are missing is the mild, hot, and fire sauces, but you can make do with our sour cream infusion.

In new relationships, you learn alot about the person very quickly. What their favorite sport is, who their favorite actor/actress may be, and what type of fast food they like. I was shocked to find out that Val LOVES Taco Bell. Not all Taco Bell food, just Cheesy Gordita Crunch’s. She could house 3 of those things in one sitting and then want to go back for more. Needless to say, when we decided to make another fast food classic, this was next on the list. Our other fast food renditions were  Chik-fila chicken nuggets and the  Big Mac.

In cooking theres something call Mise en place. This is a french culinary term that means “everything in place”. It’s practiced by very experienced chefs and is a good habit to get into. This makes cooking easier and more enjoyable because you’ll know your next steps before you even do it.

From our kitchen to yours, cheers!

      I live in the Seattle area and can buy Impossible Burger & Beyond Burger in all major grocery stores. It's usually fresh in the meat department or sometimes in the frozen vegetarian section. They are both very good. I especially like the Beyond Burger patties.
