Baked Bang Bang Cauliflower Tacos

 

Making these baked bang bang cauliflower tacos is super simple and makes a great “Meatless Monday” dish on a busy night. The fact that they are baked not fried makes them a bit healthier too. I find these also make a great appetizer if you just pile them up on a plate and serve with the cilantro ranch for dipping!

Note: You can use whatever kind of taco shell you prefer. These taste great in a regular corn shell or in a tortilla. I prefer to use these white corn tortillas. YUM.
