Luckily, I remembered to grab all the dozens of ingredients to make this yesterday while grocery shopping.
Growing up my Grams NEVER used seasoning packets for taco meat. She just seasoned it Mexican style (meaning she just threw in the spices she had to taste). So, I’ve never tried the other options available in stores. But I have heard they are full of weird ingredients and TJ’s version is not. It’s the easiest way to get good taco spices without messing with tons of different chili powders.
The recipe also only has two steps –
1. Crumble the tofu by hand into a hot, oiled pan
2. Mix in the seasoning. Cook.
Tip: If you use a whole packet of the seasoning to one block of tofu it will be pretty spicy. If you’re not a spice loving senorita or senor, use half the packet and add more to taste.
This tofu meat reminds me of chorizo. I could eat it straight up, but I opted for tacos tonight.
I topped hot corn tortillas with the tofu meat, cabbage, cheese and dipped in guacamole.
I’ll probably make a taco salad or burritos with the leftovers. It’s so versatile!
