  • Wash and slice the potatoes into match sticks. Cut the cauliflower into bite sized pieces.
  • Add the potatoes to one side of the tray, and the cauliflower to the other. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of avocado oil. Sprinkle the potatoes with the potato seasoning. Sprinkle the cauliflower with salt and pepper. Place in oven and set timer for 20 minutes. Bake until golden brown.

For the cashew queso sauce

  • Soak your cashews in hot water for 1 hour before you blend them. This helps to soften them so they can blend into a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Add all of your ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend for ~10 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
  • Store in a container in the fridge for up to 1 week.


This recipe serves 2 people with a big appetite! If you are serving a larger family, just double this recipe! I used medium sized taco shells. But, you can either use 1 large taco shell, or 4 small taco shells. 
I used al fresco chicken sausage in this recipe! It is pre-cooked, so all you have to do is heat it up!
