What an idea, using carrots this way.  The texture was pretty perfect but it did have that carrot sweetness to it.  I just added salsa and chili powder to the mix and it helped.  Once all the other taco fillings were added, I really couldn't tell it was carrot.  I will definately make this again but I really look forward to trying carrots as a sloppy joe or bbq sandwich base.


I made this because I was super hungry and I don't have much more than these ingredients in my house right now. I also used salsa instead of paste, broth for the liquid, and added some cayenne. It wasn't bad, but I think the sweetness of the carrots threw me off.


I was amazed at how much these carrots tasted like a typical taco filling! I used fewer carrots than the recipe (just one big one) and found that it was plenty for the two of us, used to top a bowl of rice with other chopped veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, onions). Would have been nice with avocados as well if we'd had those around.
