Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil - divided
  • 6 small corn tortillas - sliced into strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 jalapeno - stemmed and sliced
  • 1 12 oz package silken firm tofu, drained
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast - optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup mild or medium salsa
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 12-count package Old El Paso™ Mini Taco Boats, warmed
  • Optional Toppings: pickled jalapenos - pickled red onion, chopped cilantro, salsa, lime wedges

Instructions

  • Heat two tablespoons of the vegetable oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the sliced corn tortilla strips and fry until crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer crispy tortilla strips to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and allow to heat. Add the yellow onion and jalapeno; saute for 2 to 3 minutes, until soft.
  • Add the block of tofu to the pan. Use the back of a wooden spoon to break the tofu up into small crumbles. Stir in the nutritional yeast (if using), paprika, and cumin.
  • Return the crispy tortilla strips to the pan, along with the salsa and minced cilantro. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the liquid has absorbed and the tortillas are soft.
  • Transfer the mixture to a warm serving plate and serve alongside the warm mini taco boats and garnishes.

NOTES

If you prefer a softer consistency, use soft silken tofu in place of the firm tofu.
Add a crunchy texture to the tacos by spritzing the mini taco boats with olive oil and toasting in the oven for 2-3 minutes at 325°.
