The time of year is upon us when even the most modest fans of football unite to celebrate the biggest game of the year. For me, the Super Bowl has always been one of my favorite celebrations of the year. Growing up my parents would plan the event weeks out, making sure invitations had been sent and the menu was set. Of course growing up the food that was served was the exact opposite of the delicious, easy to make vegan/ Whole Food Plant Based meals that I enjoy so very much. And eating this way now, it has been very important to me to have great WFPB options to share with my loved ones who are looking for great recipes and meals to enjoy and bring to their own Super Bowl parties. And one such recipe is my easy vegan taquitos. These are one of my favorite simple to make party recipes. The base recipe makes eight taquitos, but believe me it can be multiplied as many times as you'd like. I know I will probably be making a batch of one hundred for my Super Bowl party. Another great thing about his recipe is the fact that it goes great with so many different sauce combinations, my favorite being salsa and taco sauce.
If you go ahead and try this recipe, let me know what you think and share a picture on my Facebook page of how it turned out!
