Chipotle Lime Street Style Tacos

BY : PUBLISHED : January 21st, 2013 UPDATED: October 25th, 2021

I whipped these tacos up last week and really enjoyed them.  They are pretty spicy, so if that is not your thing you will want to adjust.  You could use more or less of the chipotle in adobo to adjust the heat.  These tacos were quick to throw together.  Use the small street style tortillas, and top the tempeh with diced tomatoes, diced onions, and cilantro.

Enjoy!

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.95
