Chorizo Tacos Premium PD Recipe


In Mexico, tacos are spicy and simple. Fresh corn tortillas layered with meat, onions, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime. On a Protective Diet, you will be transported to many cultures, Mexico being one that is close to my now thankful healthy heart. Chorizo is a very spicy sausage that is often removed from the casing and crumbled. This version is free of pork, saturated fat, and the cholesterol of the original. Serve up traditional Mexican flavor in street food fashion with Protective Diet Chorizo Tacos.

      Thanks for the feed back! I love to hear about a family eating well and enjoying a PD dinner together. Especially when it’s a quick and easy recipe!

    Made these tonight for dinner and they were a huge success. Next time I will double the Chorizo. Fabulous!!

    Sounds delicious. Are there any non-soy substitutes that will work for the tofu?

      I haven’t found one yet that will work this perfectly, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped testing and searching 🙂

    I make the dry spices up ahead of time in a quart container (I use 1/2 cup for each spice) and all I have to do is add 5 tsp per 1 lb of tofu. I usually make 3 lbs at a time, cook and freeze about 2 lbs of the left overs – this makes for a REALLY fast diner for the coming weeks. This is my go-to recipe when I just don’t during the week. I always have taco slaw and yogurt made – so it is a no brainer for fast dinners.

    This chorizo has completely won over my 15 year old meat loving son. I cannot make any TexMex food without making either this recipe or the BBQ tofu bites.

    Thank you for another winner of a recipe!

    Love this recipe for hurry up days. Big hit with non vegans too. Great with King sauce and strained yogurt.

    I love this recipe. I had never had traditional chorizo but did eat a lot of an oil loaded vegan version from Trader Joes. This is just busting with flavor and is delicious on nachos, in tacos and a great salad topper. I always make a double batch. Perfect with Taco Slaw.

    I have the chipotle chili powder but not the smoked. Can I sub some smoked paprika to takes it’s place, and if so, how much chipotle to how much smoked paprika. Thanks
