Meatless Mondays: Tofu Tacos!

Hey everyone! Well you guys probably know by now that I love tacos, so when I saw a tofu taco recipe on AllRecipes.com. I HAD to try it and man, I'm glad I did!

1 (16 ounce) package garden herb tofu, crumbled
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
10 medium taco shells, heated
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup salsa
*hot sauce for taste (optional)

1. Over a medium heat fry the tofu, oil, garlic and onion in a large skillet for 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, paprika, cayenne, cumin, salt, lime juice and tomato sauce to the skillet and stir. Cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the cilantro. Spoon mixture in a serving bowl.

2. Spoon the tofu mixture into taco shells. Top the mixture with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, Cheddar cheese and salsa.

Serves: 8

First of all, can I say that All Recipes is such an awesome website because you can calculate however many servings you need which is awesome! Usually I just cook for myself and these recipes are for 8 and 4 servings so I overcook an insane amount. This time I could just calculate for meee, yayyy!

But yes, these tacos are insane. They are so easy to make and still so good. Sometimes after buying a block of tofu I have a hard time coming up with cooking ideas because I get lazy and don't want to create complicated dishes. I end up just making stir fry a lot. So now that I know I can easily make some delicious tacos I am rocking them more often. They taste like the regular beef tacos, too, not much difference. I loaded up on the hot sauce though because that's my thing. Definitely check it out, it is just such an easy recipe!
