Anytime there’s a big game day coming up, it’s important to find the most inspiring, delicious, and easy 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?

The ingredients to make this vegan taco dip on a counter, including vegan sour cream, tofu, cherry tomatoes, and more.

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].

Be sure and use my homemade taco seasoning to make this so delicious!

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!

You can use Nasoya’s TofuBaked products to make this recipe even easier. There’s no pressing the tofu, no marinading, or anything. You can even slice and serve. I’ve added TofuBaked slices fresh from the package to my salads, burritos, and more.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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. 🙂
