Bringing the Tex-Mex salad to the next level, this tofu bonanza is all about flavors were you don't expect to find them. After all, tofu can sometimes be a bland affair, needing that little extra something. Here it's crumbled and fried, then seasoned with taco seasoning. Added to a fresh salad with corn, cheese, and tomato, tossed in bold chipotle ranch dressing… we've leveled up big time.
