  • 1 package MorningStar Farms® BBQ Chik’n Nuggets
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews soaked for at least 2 hours, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk more if needed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh chives or dill chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley chopped, divided
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • Place the frozen BBQ Chik’n Nuggets on a baking sheet and cook for 14-16 minutes, flipping them at the halfway point.
  • While the BBQ Chik’n Nuggets are cooking, Blend the cashews, non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, chives or dill, 1 ½ teaspoon parsley, garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, and sea salt together the in high-speed blender or food processor. If it’s too thick, add a little more non-dairy milk, on teaspoon at a time.
  • Once the BBQ Chik’n Nuggets are done, remove them from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 400°F. Line another baking sheet or a baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Allow the BBQ Chik’n Nuggets to cool slightly and then slice them in to thin strips. You’ll get 4 or 5 strips per nugget.
  • If the tortillas are stiff, heat them in the oven for about 3 minutes or place them between two damp paper towels and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, until they’re warm and pliable.
  • Place a tortilla on a clean surface and spread a line (about a heaping teaspoon) of the cashew ranch sauce on it an inch or two from one of the edges. Top the cashew ranch with 4 or 5 pieces of sliced BBQ Chik’n Nuggets, a pinch of parsley, and a few pieces of scallion.
  • Roll it up as tightly as possible and place it on the prepared baking sheet or in the prepared baking dish, seam side down.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  • You can brush the taquitos with a little oil or give them a little spray of oil before baking them, to help the tortillas get crisp, if you want.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the tortillas are crisp.
  • Serve warm. Serve with the remaining cashew ranch as a dipping sauce.
