Walnut Tacos with Sweet Apple Salsa



  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice


  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 apple
  • 1 serrano pepper (optional if you don’t like spicy)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Add walnuts and dry seasonings to a food processor (don’t add lemon juice yet) and process to a powder.
  2. Add lemon juice and pulse until you reach a ground texture…
    Alternatively, if you don’t have a food processor, just use your hands or a mortar and pestle to grind the walnuts and mix ingredients together.
  3. For the salsa, add all ingredients to a food processor or finely chop and mix.
  4. Stuff your favorite taco shell or keep it raw by using lettuce leafs.

Variations:  Top with coconut cream or avocado, hot sauce, lime juice, cilantro and/or serrano pepper slices… Whatever makes you happy!

* Suggested language and details: Please make a polite phone call and keep in mind the person you are speaking to probably has no idea about this policy—most people don’t. You just need to stay on the line for a customer service representative. For Safeway, they will ask you for your full name and phone number and if you have a Safeway card number.
Suggested language: “I am calling to log a comment against a Safeway / Albertsons policy that sometimes puts restrictive deeds on its former properties and prevents other grocery stores from moving in, sometimes for 10 years or more. This has impacted community health. I would like Safeway / Albertsons to end this policy immediately.”

If they ask questions you cannot answer, feel free to provide our email: info@foodispower.org and remind them you are calling because you disagree with this practice.

Order some of our leaflets to share with others by emailing info(at)foodispower.org.
