Buffalo Tofu Tacos

A few weeks ago, we made Buffalo Mahi Fish Tacos to watch some playoff football. That same day, we hedged our bets in case those tacos didn’t satisfy us, and in the pan next door, we made these babies as a vegetarian alternative! While the original tacos were really good, we are glad we made these too, as they were also quite tasty, albeit very different. We figured that tofu would work since the tofu of our Buffalo Tofu Nuggets went really well with the Buffalo Sauce. From there, we had to pick which tofu to use, and we went with extra firm since it crumbles nicely, thus increasing the surface area for the Buffalo Sauce to stick! If you’re looking for a fun, spicy vegetarian option for Watching Football, give these a try!

  • Drain your tofu water and place the block in a large bowl. Then, mash it up by hand so it crumbles.
