This recipe is my new go-to when craving Mexican! The cashew cheese is creamy and satisfying. The walnut “beef” is just like the original Raw Veggie Ground “Beef” but with some Mexican spices. This recipe is really quick and has a huge payoff in flavor. It’s just so satisfying!

I’m currently one week into the 21 Day Vegan Cleanse Challenge. I love doing the cleanse a few times per year to reset my body and my mind. It always leads to better digestion, clearer skin, better sleeps and decreased cravings. You should join me any time you need a reboot!

I was in a hotel for all of last week. I’m excited to report it was shockingly easy to maintain the Raw Lifestyle while on the road. I’m going to do a full post on this very soon.

I’ve been finding this challenge so fun. I feel much more connected to my food and my body. I just overall feel more alive. Let me know all the great things you are experiencing during this challenge in the comments below.

This recipe is raw, vegan, gluten free, clean, high fiber, nutrient dense and the healthiest Mexican dish.
