Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos with Avocado Crema

The Big Game is right around the corner, and all I can think about is spicy buffalo cauliflower tacos! I love ordering buffalo cauli at restaurants, so I thought it might be time to attempt it at home. This recipe is baked, not fried, and includes the BEST avocado crema. Dallas peeps: It tastes just like Urban Taco’s avocado lime crema. It was all I could do not to eat it all with tortilla chips before the cauliflower was ready.

When in doubt, make it a taco.

If you’re cautious about battered, baked cauliflower, I feel you. But you will not be sorry you tried this recipe (view the original over at Pinch of Yum!). Ease into this cauliflower-centric dish by making it into a comforting and delicious taco.

You’ll Need:

For the buffalo cauliflower tacos:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, salt, and pepper
  • 1 head cauliflower (4-5 cups florets)
  • 3/4 cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s Buffalo)
  • shredded cabbage or slaw
  • chopped fresh cilantro to taste
  • whole wheat tortillas

For the avocado crema:

  • 2 avocados
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of 2 limes
Avocado Crema

Avocado crema. Could (prob should) put this on everything.


  1. Preheat oven to 450. Whisk flour, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder until batter forms.
  2. Dip cauliflower pieces individually into the batter, letting the excess drip off. Bake on a baking sheet  for 15-20 minutes or until lightly crisped and browned.
  3. Remove the baked cauliflower from the oven and gently toss with hot sauce. Return to pan and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
  4. Mix all avocado crema ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Toss the slaw with some of the avocado crema.
  5. Fill each tortilla with slaw, cauliflower, a drizzle of avocado crema, and fresh cilantro. Enjoy!
