It’s my favorite time of year, fall and football season! And I’m so behind on getting game day recipes up, but I’ve got a great one for you today!
When it comes to eating meat, I could often take it or leave it to be honest. My husband would beg to differ though. He’s totally a meat-and-potatoes kind of dude. But at least once a week, I try to go meat-free. It just makes me feel better, lighter, and healthier. You guys may have already seen the phrase “Meatless Mondays” going around the interwebz for some time now. It’s easy to adopt going meat-free just one day a week and why not Mondays? My friends at Silk are encouraging people to take their #MeatlessMondayNight challenge to sideline meat during Monday Night Football games this season! I’ve got a recipe that is perfect to munch on while watching Monday Night Football AND that is also meat-free and dairy-free!
First, I made some suppppper simple corn and black bean taquitos. These puppies are stuffed with sauteed black beans and corn that are seasoned with homemade taco seasoning and then rolled and baked in corn tortillas until they are nice and crispy! No frying required here either, folks! I then wanted to create a dip that was kind of like a guacamole, but smoother and this creamy avocado dip totally fits the bill!
I used Silk’s Soymilk for this dip and it was just perfect. It helped give the dip a smooth and creamy texture that was perfect for dipping the taquitos into! I absolutely love the flavor combos in this appetizer and it’s the perfect dish to make to enjoy while watching the big game! Meat-eaters won’t even miss the meat in this dish with the flavorful corn and black bean filling and the addicting avocado dip.
