Ingredients

Spicy Tofu

Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Chipotle Crema

  • 1 cup silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • Toppings: sliced avocado or guacamole, fresh cilantro, lime wedges

Here’s how to make it:

  1. To make the chipotle tofu, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Add crumbled tofu and cook until lightly browned. Add maple syrup, Sriracha, smoked paprika, chipotle and salt, and stir until tofu is coated. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. To make the mango salsa, stir all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  3. To make the chipotle crema, combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. To assemble the tacos, heat a tortilla in a pan over medium-high heat or by placing it directly on the burner for about a minute, using tongs to flip. Plate. Layer on the tofu, mango salsa and a drizzle of chipotle crema. Garnish with guacamole, cilantro and a lime wedge.
