Tofu Tacos Recipe

If you like Tacos then you are in luck! I put together a recipe that is easy and healthier in my opinion than ground beef tacos. At first I was a little scared that the family wouldn’t like the texture or taste of the tofu, but no one even noticed. Tofu takes on the flavors of whatever seasonings you use, and it can be eaten raw or prepared in virtually unlimited ways including marinated, baked, grilled, stir-fried or sautéed.

If you are trying to live a healthier lifestyle, you should try adding Tofu because it is high in protein and iron while low in calories and fat. What a great substitute for Meat! I used my Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix in this recipe because it’s so much better than store bought and costs a lot less. You could pair this with Homemade Refried Beans.
