Alicia Silverstone's Chorizo Tacos

Alicia Silverstone's Chorizo Tacos
These tacos are perfect for your meat-eating friends. For my 25th birthday, we held a party
at a farm animal sanctuary. It was unbelievably fun sharing that day with friends, family,
and the pigs! Christopher ran a taco stand and served these tacos to 150 people! They were



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces sliced vegan chorizo or taco crumbles
  • 4–6 corn tortillas, soft or hard as you prefer
  • 1⁄2 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • Prepared salsa
  • 1 cup tofu sour cream or Tofu Cream (page 225 of "The Kind Diet")
  • 2⁄3 cup shredded vegan Cheddar cheese
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  • Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chorizo or tacocrumbles and cook, stirring until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Transfer to a small bowl.
  • If using soft tortillas, wrap in a slightly damp kitchen towel and heat in a 350°F oven or toaster oven for 5 to 6 minutes or until warm and pliable. (Hard taco shells don’t need to be heated.)
  • Arrange the onions, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, tofu sour cream or Tofu Cream, and cheese in small bowls alongside the chorizo.
  • Pass around the tortillas so everyone can fi ll their own tacos and add hot sauce to taste.
