September. For some, back to school! For some, cooler weather and an excuse to roast squash. For others yet, a reminder to stop drinking at the cottage every weekend. Some days are cool, some days are warm, and who really knows what to eat in this stupid weather anyway.

Basically, all of our chakras are not aligned. After a season of beers near a boat, chips for dinner in the heat, and the stress that comes with change, there is only one solution.

You better bet you'll get a little help from your cleanse.




Find your center with tacos for breakfast. Tacos for lunch. Tacos for dinner. And the ever-important "Supplements". Make sure you don't miss the important section about Taco Yoga.

Per the ebook bargains thread:

YES! That means you have a couple days left to take advantage of a REALLY good ebook deal, if you haven't already. (to be fair, I did try to warn you)

Maybe you feel that one single cookbook is not enough for all your cleansing needs. Share your adventures with taco recipes from the other books you own, I know there's the collards and black eyed pea taco with apple salsa which is one of the only recipes I have not yet attempted from Isa Does It!

Don't tell the taco scientists but I feel it is only fair to open this challenge up to the burritos and fajitas in our lives. Push out the hate, bring in the love. It'll be good for all of us.

Not feeling this challenge? That's cool too. Choose your own adventure, and let us know how it goes! And if you've not joined in on a challenge yet, feel free to jump in. Use the #ppkcooks2016 hashtag to share your doings!

mine is saucier than the book but I decided to flip through and see what I had the ingredients for so I made the barbacoa mushrooms (yes I did tag #cleanse when posting this)

I made the Minimalist Nacho Cheese sauce to just have to dip chips into last night, but I messed it up somehow. The sauce never thickened for me -- maybe because I used cashew milk instead of soy milk? It also is quite brown because of the cumin.

It still tastes good, though, so I don't care.

FINALLY, I challenge I can handle! So far I've made the barbacoa mushrooms a million ways (all the mushrooms, also potatoes, green beans, aubergines, courgettes...) with a million different dried chilis (don't know names! but they were all amazing). Sounds like this could be the month to branch out and try different recipes!

Portobello mushroom fajitas with poblano cream sauce from Everyday Vegan Eats. So good, and I'm happy I've got some of the sauce leftover for future taco adventures.

I have made migas a few times. I think it's time to branch out and try other stuff!

Wake and shake scramble tacos for lunch, with cherry tomatoes and leftover poblano cream sauce.

I was a little disturbed at how much I felt like I was eating popcorn chicken. So good.

Think I might take a cleansing post-lunch nap. Feeling very at peace

I adore that wake and shake scramble. I have made it so many times I forgot what book it came from. Credit, restored.

I'm in for September. I doubt I'll complete a Fuego level cleanse but maybe a few medium level and one or two level hot.

I need to do this. I bought the book forever ago and cooked out if it all of....once. My parents are visiting the first half of the month so all will be crazy with little time to cook, but hopefully the second half of the month I can get on the taco (cleanse) wagon!

Wake & Shake Scramble yesterday for breakfast, and Mighty Migas today (which I make so often I don't actually need the recipe). I have stuff to make the Barbacoa Mushroom tacos, either tonight or tomorrow.

I made the pico de gallo today so it can hang out in the fridge and get all super-yummy for the next day. Everyone has raved so much about the migas, it had to be my first meal, so I have all the ingredients to make it for dinner tomorrow. Also gonna make the agave margarita, because why the hell not?

I made the Elevated Nacho Cheese, and even though I have the recipe starred in the book, which indicates I've made it before...I definitely have not made it before! It's crazy delicious!

I am also making the Ion-Charged Refried Beans today since it takes several hours and I'm just kicking around home all day. Barbacoa Mushrooms can be a weeknight meal for the upcoming week since I'm runnin' low on funds and I already have all the ingredients.

Mighty Migas. Oh. My. God. The texture reminds me so much of a fast food breakfast burrito, which is a wonderfully good thing to me. And the flavor is just yummy. I'll be making this so many times.

Hollie, I understand now why you raved so much about this one in the cookbook thread.

Oh, and the agave margarita - very tasty. But maybe I shouldn't have had 1/4 cup of tequila before I was ready to no longer be productive for the night.

We had the enlightened soy curls al pastor tonight. I made them once before but forgot to add the guajillo chile. Needless to say they tasted even better this time. Next time I might add a little extra pineapple.
I posted a picture of the tacos on Instagram too. I feel extra fancy.

I cooked some pinto beans today, so maybe they'll make it into some type of taco tomorrow.

Wake and Shake Scramble with leftover rice and stuffs for breakfast tacos! The best. I like it straight off the pan.

The plain ol' margarita recipe is also the best margarita recipe evarrrr

I am getting a lot of ideas for that tofu that don't include tacos. Nom.

Deeply roasted chipotle butternut squash with cilantro-avocado tranquility sauce. The combo was way better than I anticipated. Roasted the filling yesterday as I guessed I would have a late night at work and was correct, and all I had to do tonight was reheat and make the sauce. Filling on its own is tasty but underwhelming. The sauce makes it.
