Taco Variations: Where is the fashion statement I need/want?

About a year ago, I tried a fried avocado taco at a restaurant in San Diego. It was delicious. What other meatesque but veggie things (besides beans) could go into a great taco...a good pairing with chopped or chiffonaded lettuce, chopped tomatoes or salsa, cheese (either cheddar or queso fresco)? OR...other pairings...like a Mediterranean taco with hummus, cucumbers, etc. I think you could put old shoe leather into the taco base, add condiments, and it would taste good, but is there a cookbook that puts together a wardrobe of taco fillings and dressings? I want to know!

Currently working on a vegan "ground chicken" that I'm testing out as taco filling - IF it works out I'll post the recipe.

cauliflower is actually really delicious with taco seasoning.
