Vegan Taco Dip with Chipotle Tofu

The big game day is coming up and that means finding the most inspiring, delicious, and easy appetizers. I’m all about the vegan dip. For example, there’s my Vegan Queso Dip and my Easy Vegan Rangoon Dip. You could even call me the Queen of Dips. No wait. Don’t do that. My sisters would laugh. Well, today’s dip is no laughing matter. One bite of this this creamy Vegan Taco Dip with Chipotle Tofu will lead to another, after another, after another. You get the picture.

Get ready for the big game day with this Vegan Taco Dip with Chipotle Tofu. Get ready to dig in to this creamy, spicy, mexican dip that will keep you and your party friends coming back for one bite after another! Bring on the Super Bowl appetizers!

It’s true that I’m sort of a fair-weather football fan. Hearing that the Chiefs made their way into the playoffs had me kind of excited. I even organized an impromptu party, hosted by my mom. 🙂

I mean, how cool would it be to have the Chiefs in the Super Bowl right after the Royal’s won the World Series?

Kansas City would have ruled the world!

But, as you probably know, the Chiefs lost. [insert sad face]

That doesn’t mean, however, we can’t watch the big game anyway.

And there’s lots of other sports going on that can require social gatherings and dips. For example, the Australian Open finals are happening this weekend. How exciting!

Go Serena!

Oh wait. We were talking about football. Right?

Delicious and dreamy Vegan Taco Dip

How To Make Vegan Taco Dip

This may be the easiest dip of all time. It takes only 8 ingredients, a few, simple steps and you’re on your way to game-day dipping.

To make this vegan taco dip, first pour the vegan cream cheese and vegan sour cream into a bowl and stir away. Add a little bit of mild salsa and some taco seasonings (can you join me in a big MMMM right now?), and then add cubed Nasoya TofuBaked Chipotle marinated tofu. [More about that tofu in a moment].

Follow that with some finely chopped greens (I prefer spinach, but field greens or even kale could work here), finely grated vegan cheddar cheese, and some chopped cherry tomatoes.

You can serve that dip right away, or refrigerate to serve later. Surround it with a plate of chips and watch your guests have at it.

Let’s Talk Tofu

I know it’s easy to feel intimidated by working with tofu. I’ve been there before myself. The first time I decided to try it, I headed to my local grocery store, walked up to a clerk to ask about it, and realized I didn’t even know how to pronounce tofu!

The good news is, Nasoya has introduced a TofuBaked line, including TofuBaked Chipotle, that makes working with tofu super simple! There’s no pressing the tofu, no marinading, or anything. You can even slice and serve. I’ve added TofuBaked slices to my salads, burritos, and more.

Vegan Taco Dip is best served with tortilla chips

We hope you love this Vegan Taco Dip as much as we do! If you make it, snap a photo and send it to us using #namelymarly on Twitter or Instagram. We love seeing your photos!

  1. What a fun dip!! If I could do soy, I would so be all over this!

  2. You had me at taco! I love dips, too. We always have some kind of hummus in the fridge and maybe one other dip/spread too. The kids LOVE to dip things (they even dipped apple slices in ketchup today….I had to look away! Kids!) Can’t wait to check out that Vegan Rangoon Dip too…..YUM!

  3. That tofu looks delicious. It’s a shame its not available int he shops here. hopefully soon!

  4. Looks like the perfect game day appetizer. Thanks!

  5. Oh my gosh this looks delicious and how easy to throw together. Love your flavor combination!!

  6. I made some curry using these baked tofu and it was delicious. The tofu is so versatile and can make any dish delicious. Your recipe looks super delicious.

  7. TofuBaked sounds fantastic and chipotle even makes it better. As always thanks for the great recipe – football or not. 🙂

  8. So I have totally seen the seasoned tofu by Nasoya and wondered how it was! Now I know! Tofu is the baby’s newly found love, he literally takes handfuls of pieces and shoves them in. Ha! I love love Mexican food too, I kind of have to living in San Diego. But really I could eat it daily. Like dips like this, definitely dinner. Not just an app. Looks divine!

  9. Oh yum, this looks so good! I need to branch out a bit more with tofu, and this looks like the perfect way to do it!

  10. This dip looks _so_ good Marly! I love tofu and I’ve been meaning to treat myself to a package of the Nasoya baked. You’ve convinced me I need it in my life! I love your pics too. 🙂
