Whether it’s for the Friday night lights, the love of your favorite college team or the familiar tune of Monday night football you enjoy, tailgating season is upon us and it’s time to break out your team colors and the mini-grill.
Tailgating is a great time to get together with friends and enjoy a variety of foods. While hotdogs, burgers and chips are common staples, tailgating also allows for some creativity to keep things interesting through the long football season. With that in mind, adding a soy-spin to some classic recipes will give your dishes a high quality, protein punch.
The Taco Burger recipe below will make either 6 taco burgers (similar to maid rites) or you can use it to fill ten 5 to 6 inch size corn tortillas. For the ultimate tailgating experience, we recommend using it for walking tacos (bag of soy chips + taco + toppings of your choice).
