Gawsh, we need a 10-star reviewing system! This is a fantastic recipe! The tofu did not taste tofu-ey at all, and my sister thought that I'd used panir! I scaled it to 4 servings, and used 1/4 cup of tomato paste dissolved in 1/3 cup water for the tomato sauce. I used a little less of chili powder since I don't like spicy food. The filling was great even in the plain wheat rotis that we make. Thanks Mirjam, I LOVE this one!

Ok, I admit, I didn't think this was going to go over big with my family..but they loved it! My 6yr old asked for seconds and that is something. This is my first time making a tofu dish and I will definitely have to experiment more. Thanks!

This is my first time ever making tofu, to take over to a friend's house, and it was a big hit! I made it exactly as the recipe states, and I could have used a little more heat personally, but it was the right temperature to take to an event where you aren't sure of people's chili tolerance. I'll keep this recipe on-hand even for myself, and that's saying something for a meat-lover!

These made for a pretty tasty and relatively healthy meal! I topped my tacos with homemade guac, sour cream, and cheese, though out of personal preference. This was a great way to use up tofu!

These were delicious! I made them as written except for leaving out the oil and sauteing in water and using flour tortillas instead of corn. And my hubby also added Ranch dressing to his. Thanks so much for sharing! :O)

The flavor was great but I didn't care for the mushy texture. I made it a 2nd time substituting Griller Crumbles (MorningStar Farms) for the tofu. I liked this much better.

Wow! I've made this recipe twice now and it's delicious. The second time I added some kidney beans, and used my own taco spice mix. My husband and I just cannot get over how great these are. Thanks for sharing!

really great recipe! I added a little lime juice as well, which cut the spice a little. I will definitely be making it again!

Surprisingly filling and delicious for how simple it is. I added a can of kidney beans for a little more sustenance and found that it produced about 10 tacos. I also added 1 tbsp. of nutritional yeast and was pleased with the results. Will definitely make again!

A lovely and tasty filling for tortillas, and quick to make, too! A hit with my vegetarian friends! Personally I was ever so slightly iffy about the tomato sauce, and might give plain crushed tomatoes and a touch of spice a try the next time... Hmm! A great tofu dish though - I think I'm seriously getting into the stuff! Thanks Mirj!
