More About This Recipe
Go vegetarian tonight! Turn tofu into a super-quick, super tasty dinner with this absurdly easy recipe.
When my house full of picky eaters stands around the stove and begs for a bite of tofu, I know something has been done right. That situation is exactly what arose today as I cooked up a bunch of tofu tacos.
This recipe for Blackened Tofu Tacos is surprisingly snappy and it makes your house smell so good, you'll want to lick the walls. Here's how to make the magic happen at your house.
You'll need a package of Old El Paso™ Taco Seasoning and a box of Old El Paso™ White Corn Taco Shells. We always crisp our shells in a hot oven for a few minutes, just to get that extra fresh flavor and crunch.
And, you'll need a block of Extra Firm Tofu. A lot of tofu recipes call for some marinating before hand to give the tofu a deep, intense flavor. This recipe, with is heavy coat of spices, doesn't need any preparation. Just pull the tofu from the package, drain it, and cut it into bite-sized cubes.
After a few minutes of cooking the tofu, you might think you're done because the spiced mixture on the tofu is turning dark, but make sure you allow it to cook until the spices are crispy. Add a little more oil, if needed, to fry the spices into crisped perfection.
Serve your tofu tucked into tacos with a sweet coleslaw, and a zesty fireroasted pantry salsa, a bit of sharp cheddar cheese, and a heart full of gold.
