Tofu Taco Filling

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Wendy0

This is a favorite of my kids who love meat but prefer their tacos this way. Be sure to allow time for the frozen block of tofu to thaw. Freezing and thawing it turns it into a completely different texture. We serve with corn or flour tortillas, refried beans, cheese, lettuce, and plain yogurt pretending to be sour cream. It's not too hot for the kiddos, and Dad jazzes his up with hot sauce...but then he has an asbestos tongue.

An interesting change from regular ground beef ... or ground pork in our case. I didn't care for the oregano, it's not a taste that I'm use to in taco's. I only used 1 Tbsp. of chili powder ... that was plenty "hot". We enjoyed these the "crispy-soft" style which means, we loaded up crisp taco shells with all the fixings, then wrapped it in a soft flour shell. Very delicious!!! Thanks for a great alternative Wendy0 :) I Made this for the "Cooking with an Asian Accent" event - March 2009.
