Soy Chorizo Tacos Recipe:

One of the foods I missed after becoming a vegetarian was chorizo because it’s super flavorful and has a great spice to it. But soy chorizo has saved my life and soy chorizo tacos are my favorite tacos to eat and make. Trader Joes has the best soy chorizo but there is also Cacique and Yves, which are also good. This soy chorizo tacos recipe is super versatile and makes a great filling for tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, etc. It’s also super easy and perfect for a Taco Tuesday weeknight when you’re tired from work but want to celebrate Taco Tuesday.

If you try one of my recipes, I would love if you could tag it on Instagram or FB @chivegfood!

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 package Corn Tortillas (El Milagro is my favorite)

  • 16 oz soy chorizo (Trader Joe’s is my favorite)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil (grapeseed is fine too)

  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 lb mushrooms (sliced)

  • 1 golden onion (diced)

  • 1 poblano pepper (sliced)

  • 2 cloves garlic (diced)

  • 1 bunch cilantro (garnish)

  • 1 jalapeno (garnish)

  • dairy or vegan cheese (Follow Your Heart Cheddar is my favorite for vegan cheese) to taste

  • Spices: I add more than this but start out with this amount.
  • 2 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp black pepper

  • 2 tsp red pepper

  • 2 tsp chili powder

  • 2 tsp Hungarian paprika

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp Tajin


  • First, chop up all of your veggies.
  • Then, in a medium frying pan on medium heat, heat up the oil. Add a tiny piece of the onion and once it starts sizzling it’s ready.
  • Sauté your onion for about 3 minutes when it becomes translucent. Then add the pepper and the mushrooms, sauté for 3-4 minutes till there is a char on the pepper.
  • Then, add the garlic and all of the spices. Season to taste. Stir everything for about 1 minute.
  • Finally, add the soy chorizo and mix everything together for about 3-4 minutes making sure that the soy chorizo is also sautéing. I like spice so I add a bit more of the spices on the soy chorizo too. Add the tomato paste and 1/2 cup of water, stir, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 2 minutes.
  • Turn off the stove, garnish with cilantro, jalapeños, vegan or dairy cheese and heat up your favorite corn tortillas!


  • Want it spicier? Add more chili powder and red pepper flakes.
  • Want your taco filling more moist? Add a little water.
  • Simmered chipotle peppers add a wonderful flavor and hint of sauce to these tacos.
  • These tacos are wonderful with Follow Your Heart vegan feta (a decent substitute for cotija).
