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!
