Chicken & Cauliflower Tacos #sheetpandinners

Jump to Recipe

In order to have #TacoTuesday every week, you gotta get creative by trying new ingredients. I like to call cauliflower the chicken of vegetables because it is so versatile. You can use it in lots of different types and styles of cooking. These Chicken & Cauliflower Tacos are super easy to make and so tasty. And the homemade avocado crema is so light and bright.

Chicken & Cauliflower Tacos

Sheet pan dinners are so good for weeknight meals because once you have everything on the pan, you just have to let it bake. You want to cut the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces so that they cook up evenly and fit well inside the tortillas. Try to get the pieces of chicken and cauliflower basically equal in size for good uniformity.

The avocado crema is so easy to make and gives a great level of flavor. If you wanted to add a little kick to it, you could add a tablespoon of pickled jalapeno juice into the mix. Conversely, if you don’t care for avocado, you can omit it and just add the seasonings to the sour cream. I served these tacos with Cheesy Beans (1 can of whole pinto beans, drained, 1 can of refried beans, half a cup of milk and a cup of cheese).

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
