  • 4 avocados, peeled and chopped
  • 3 serrano peppers, seeded and diced fine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water

Salsa Roja:

  • 1 cup dried red chilies
  • 4 stewed tomatillos
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 can stewed tomato
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup salt


  • Make the guacamole, see recipe below.
  • Make the Salsa Roja, see recipe below.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large griddle or cast iron pan over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the OZO Plant-Based Mexican Seasoned Ground and cook for 6-8 minutes or until the meat is browned on all sides and starting to crumble. Move to the side of the griddle to keep warm.
  • Reduce heat to medium/medium-high and add a bit more oil to the griddle. Place the tortillas on the griddle and top with a generous amount of cheese. On half of the tortillas, add some of the cooked OZO Plant-Based Mexican Seasoned Ground, onion, cilantro, red sauce, and guacamole.
  • Place the other tortilla, cheese side down, on top of the fillings.


  • Add the avocados, serrano peppers, cilantro, garlic, salt, and a bit of water to a blender.
  • Blend until smooth, adding water as needed to thin it down.
  • Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Salsa Roja:

  • Add the chilies, tomatillos, vegetable stock, stewed tomato and ½ cup of its stewing liquid, garlic, and a bit of salt in a blender.
  • Blend until everything is well incorporated, adding salt to taste.
