Ingredients

cilantro sour cream

  • 1/2 C raw whole cashews (soaked for 20 minutes in hot water)
  • 1/4 C almond milk
  • 1/3 C cilantro
  • 1/2 a lime, juiced
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 C shredded vegan cheese
  • 5 to 6 C corn chips

Instructions

  3. Massage the shredded kale with lime juice.

  6. Top with diced avocado and cilantro sour cream. You can add more freshly chopped cilantro if desired.
