Roast Da Seeds (Da Goods)

Mix up your pumpkin seeds with a bit of salt, pepper, and paprika. Roast for 15 min at 350 Fahrenheit until aromatic, I usually do this first as it's quick and you can start other parts of this epic combination of taco fillings.

I would have seasoned my own tofu for this but these are way too good to pass up.

Pro tip: Salsa Breaks

It's not taco night without chips and salsa. Scientific fact: your tacos won't taste like tacos unless you truly indulge in some chips and salsa.
