I love to eat these - such fresh ingredients with just a slight kick. A nice change from the usual meaty tacos. :o)

How to Make Veggie Tacos

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, medium-high heat.
  2. When oil is hot, add tofu, chili powder, half of the salt, and half of the pepper. Cook until nice and brown, about 6-7 minutes.
  3. While the tofu is cooking, add sunflower nuts to the skillet.
  4. Add corn to tofu mixture and cook until heated thoroughly, around 4 minutes. Add the bell pepper, rice (if you choose to include it), and remaining salt/pepper, cooking for another 5 minutes or so, until the peppers are slightly tender.
  5. When everything in the skillet is cooked, heat the tortillas (either in a separate skillet or microwave). Drop a bit of salsa to an open tortilla, add some crumbled cheese, and a large spoonful of the veggie/tofu mixture. Top with fresh spinach. Fold and eat!
  6. Do the same with the remaining tortillas for a simple and pretty darn healthy veggie dinner!
