Delicata Tacos with Almond Crema

November 1, 2016

November is a cozy month, one that’s meant for warm comfort food to be enjoyed with loved ones. Since it’s the first day of November I wanted to share a hearty fall recipe filled with some of my favorite ingredients. Squash epitomizes fall cooking, sweet and savory preparations are both a part of my daily life in November. Today I’m making delicata tacos with almond crema with the addition of some zesty pomegranate seeds and crunchy Harvest Snaps Black Bean Crisps. I love the unexpected crunch and subtle spice offered up by the Habanero Black Bean flavor of Harvest Snaps. The squash base of this lively taco will satisfy your winter hunger and fill you with warmth. I can’t wait for you to try this recipe and share it with your loved ones.
