I love how the spicy tofu crumbles compliment the creamy goat cheese. You guys will love this fun new taco recipe! So here’s what you want to do to make Spicy Vegetarian Tofu Tacos:

Sauté the bell pepper strips in olive oil over medium high heat. Continue to cook until reduced and softened. Transfer the peppers to a bowl and set aside.

Add crumbled tofu to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally until it’s warmed through and browns up a bit, about 4 minutes. Add an additional tablespoon of oil if needed.

Add the chili powder, cumin, and sea salt and mix until the tofu is completely coated with the spices.

On each tortilla, scoop tofu mixture. Top with the peppers, onion, goat cheese and serve with salsa and avocado if desired!
