Enchilada police: arrest me now. These are too delicious to be legal. A chunky salsa of avocado, tomato, onion, and cilantro, mixed with a walnut taco meat, spiced with cumin and coriander, all wrapped up in raw tomato-corn tortillas and covered in a creamy cashew cheese sauce. This is savory food heaven. These are epic. Not authentic at all (you can't be when you make something raw and vegan, just being frank here), but mind-blowingly tasty nonetheless. It's quite a simple recipe and doesn't take long to make at all, not including dehydration time for the tortillas. The taco nut meat is almost too good to be true, and the cashew cheese sauce will make you sing. It goes without saying that the salsa is fabulous. Make these now, then freak out with joy.

I made this today and it really is fabulous. I am so tired of raw recipes that try to mock a cooked food and usually taste nothing like the original and really don\'t taste good at all. This tasted very much like a bean and meat enchilada. I used raw sunflower seeds as that is what I had and they taste similar to cashew, soaked them first of course and added a dash of cumin and some dried oregano for a more Mexicany flavor. The tortillas actually had the texture of a tortilla and again, added cumin and oregano so they were also packed with flavor. I think my family would eat this (not replace my homemade enchiladas with it but they would eat it.) Thanks for the great recipe!

The nuts won't get spicy if you wash them once in a while. Wait. Did I just say that out loud?
