Wanna Taco ‘Bout It?

Posted on June 6, 2016. Filed under: Main Course, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

So, right after I got my wisdom teeth out the first thing I thought was “I want taco bell”. Few things wrong with that thought: I couldn’t eat anything (my face was still numb) and I only want Taco Bell when I’m not sober (wasn’t drugged up). But, ever since then I’ve been wanting tacos.

I know I’ve made a lot of different tacos, because who doesn’t like tacos? I wanted something easy today because I finished an 8 hr shift with little food and I needed to eat quickly. When I walked into the store I knew I wanted something with tofu. I then discovered that it’s officially strawberry season and the berries are on sale. I normally do tomato salsa, but why not a fruit salsa? Throw in a jalapeno and some red onion and you have a tasty taco topping.

This recipe is very easy and pretty good for you. It is on the spicy end, but with a creamy cheese to cool it down, it’s not that bad.

Chiplote Lime Tofu Tacos with a Sweet and Spicy Fruit Salsa

Here’s what to get from the store:

Extra Firm Tofu
Chiplote
Strawberries
Mango
Raspberries
Red Onion
Jalapeno
Lime
Goat Cheese
Spinach

Sweet and Spicy Fruit Salsa

3 strawberries, diced
1/2 mango, cubed
4 raspberries, diced
1 tbsp diced red onion
1 jalapeno, deseeded and diced
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and Pepper

  1. Mix everything together in a bowl and set aside.

Chiplote Lime Tofu Tacos

1/2 block tofu, cubed
1 chiplote plus some of the sauce from the can
Juice of 1/2 lime
Salt and Pepper
Goat Cheese
Tortillas
Spinach

  1. Dice the chiplote and mix the sauce with the lime juice with the tofu. Saute the tofu until browned.
  2. To build the tacos: Warm the tortilla shells. Place the goat cheese on the middle, then spinach, then tofu, then top with the fruit salsa.

My past few days I’ve had off I’ve given to other people (or dental work) and it’s been exhausting. I love my busy life but sometimes I just need some time to myself. That won’t be this week, but hopefully next week I’ll be able to take some time and just do me. Don’t ever forget to take time for yourself.
