If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love Taco Tuesday, and Taco Monday, and Taco Thursday, etc. Any day that includes tacos is a favorite of mine, and this is one of my favorite recipes! My fiancé actually said this is his favorite taco recipe of all time — which is huge considering how often I make them.

I think it’s because of his love for soy, He is a health-conscious man who is extremely physically active, and he loves that soy since it’s a complete protein that can be used in so many different ways (he loves putting silken tofu in his morning, post-work-out smoothies). Plus, I love that it’s inexpensive! In fact, I got this extra firm tofu for $1.50! What an amazing price for a high-quality protein source. How do you like to use tofu?
