Ingredients

  • firm tofu

  • Spanish rice (store-bought)

  • 1/2 yellow onion

  • 1 bell pepper

  • taco seasoning

  • corn tortillas

  • guacamole

  • salsa

  • olive oil

Directions

  • Slice the onion and bell pepper into thin strips. In a large pan on medium heat, sauté the onion and bell pepper in olive oil until the onions start to brown.
  • With a fork, smash the tofu until it’s crumbly. (Tip: I like do this on a paper towel to absorb some of the water that seeps from the tofu)
  • Add the tofu-crumble to the pan. Mix until the tofu and vegetables are well-incorporated.
  • Add taco seasoning to taste; stir. (If your tofu mixture gets too dry as you add seasoning, add small amounts of water to the pan until desired consistency is achieved). Cook for about 5-7mins.
  • In a separate pot, make the Spanish rice by bringing it to a boil, then reducing the heat and letting it simmer for about 15mins. (Since this is store-bought, cooking times may vary; follow the instructions on the box.)
  • Warm the tortillas by placing them in a pan on medium heat, flipping after 1-2mins.
  • Assemble your tacos! Top with salsa, guacamole, lettuce, or whatever condiments you may like. Enjoy! 🙂
