Grand Moff Tacos: You May Devour When Ready

Delicious to the last.

Being a Grand Moff is a difficult job. There are oversectors to control, princesses to threaten, it’s a thankless task. For Wilhuff Tarkin, being the Empire’s first Grand Moff was a lot of responsibility with very little time for lunch breaks.

Until now. These Grand Moff Tacos are made with homemade tortillas that are colored to reflect the stately gray tone of Imperial uniforms. They even feature an edible rank insignia plaque so you can show your troops who’s boss at lunchtime. There’s no better meal to grab and go when you’re in command of the Death Star.

Grey dough in an electric mixer.

Place into the ungreased skillet and cook 30 seconds to one minute, per side. Let cool slightly. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough balls.

Fill the tortillas with chicken, guacamole, salsa, lettuce, and cheese.

In a small bowl stir together the sour cream with a few drops of blue food gel dye. Spoon into a piping bag and pipe the blue sour cream onto the plate into the shape of 6 small squares. Add the red and yellow pepper pieces to complete the rank insignia plaque.

Serve immediately. See? Your tastebuds can be reasonable.
