I love these tacos because you don’t need a ton of toppings, or any, really! The beauty is that the filling cooks in its own sauce, with minimal ingredients but maximum flavor. Cilantro, cumin, and tomato are all heightened through the addition of beer. A little guac and you are all set.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (14-ounce/400 g<


  1. Preheat a large cast-iron pan over medium heat. Once the pan is good and hot, apply 1 tablespoon olive oil in a thin layer. Add the tofu and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cook for about 7 minutes, tossing often and spraying with additional oil as necessary, until the tofu is nicely browned. Transfer it to a plate; you’ll add it back later. Keep the pan on the heat.
