These tacos are delicious! The walnuts with spices taste like taco meat! The tacos are vegetarian with the sour cream and vegan without but you would never notice. One thing that's confusing in the recipe is what constitutes the salsa ingredients. I assume it's the peach, pepper, tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper. Also, lime juice is listed a second time but it doesn't say what to do with it - I guess a little on top of the completed tacos? Finally, it looks like there is cilantro on the tacos in the photo but it's not in the recipe. Personally I wouldn't add it. It took me many more pulses than 4 or 5 on the walnuts. Make these! Eat these!
