Wrap your tofu in paper towels and press between plates to release excess water for ~15 mins.
Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients.
Then use your hands to crumble in the tofu. Mix well.
Saute in a pan (no oil needed) for a good 6-8 minutes so it's nice and crumbly. Set aside.
Jalapeño Cilantro Salsa
Add everything to a food processor and pulse together until smooth. Set aside.
Layer two tortillas together and cook in a pan (I like to layer two so the tacos are sturdier).
Continuously flip until the sides start to brown (be patient!).
Repeat for however many tacos you want (4-5 tacos is roughly 1 serving).
Then add in all of your toppings! Drizzle with some spicy salsa and fresh lime juice.
Extra Notes & Tips
I love the tofu from Trader Joe's because they have Extra Firm AND it's higher in Protein.
Roughly 1 cup is equivalent to half a block of the Trader Joe's tofu.
Keep in mind, cayenne is a pretty spicy spice. So when adding it "to taste", just use a small dash. The other spices, I usually dump a decent amount lol.
The salsa can easily be made with dairy yogurt as well. Greek works the best for a creamier texture. You can also sub for sour cream.
If you're not a huge spice fan, remove some of all of the jalapeño seeds before making your salsa.
Store both the chorizo & salsa in a air-tight container for up to a week!
