Chipotle Lime Street Style Tacos

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.


Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.95


  • 1 Package of Tempeh
  • 1 Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons of Lime Juice
  • 1 Teaspoon of Chili Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cumin
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons of Dried Minced Onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika (regular is fine)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Oregano
  • 8 Tortillas

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Continue to cook on medium heat for 5 more minutes.
