Tofu Tacos and Fresh Mango Salsa


I love teaching people how to cook, so when the host of NBC Texas Today said she was a vegetarian and didn’t have a lot of experience cooking in the kitchen, I knew my Tofu Tacos would be the perfect recipe to share with her. While I used the grill for the tv segment, on Instagram I showed how I also make these in the air fryer (which my kids love). Below you’ll find the recipe for fool-proof, crispy, tofu tacos but if tofu isn’t your jam you could also substitute chicken or shrimp in the recipe.
