My friend Susanne also passed this idea along to go with that yummy Tomatillo Avocado Guacamole.  I tweaked the spices some and was thrilled with the resulting dish.  I am not a huge fan of tempeh, but it’s a healthier alternative over tofu, so I’m always excited when I find a tempeh recipe that I love!!

Consider increasing the recipe if feeding more than 2 or 3 people unless you have a lot of side dishes.


  • 1/2 cup onion (half an onion), diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 package tempeh
  • 1 lime, juiced

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil, water or broth.  Once soft, add spices and saute a couple of minutes more.  Crumble the tempeh into the pan and saute a few minutes.  Add lime juice and serve in your choice of taco shell.
