Directions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 2
Add Carrots (3) , Cauliflower Florets (1 1/2 cups) , Sweet Onion (1/2) , Pecan Halves (1 cup) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Chili Powder (1 tsp) , Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) , Chipotle Seasoning (1/4 tsp) , and Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse all ingredients until the mixture is evenly ground yet still has some smaller chunks, approximately 10-15 seconds.
Step 3
Transfer vegan taco "meat" to a greased baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning. You want the carrots and cauliflower to be cooked but not mushy, leaving it with a slightly crunchy texture.
Step 4
Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then divide evenly among Butter Lettuce (12 pieces) , approximately 1/4 cup mixture for each lettuce leaf.
Step 5
Top with Avocado (1) and Fresh Cilantro (to taste) , then serve! If you're not worried about keeping this vegan, sour cream or Cotija cheese would be great additions as well!
