Cooking time

18-20 minutes


  • 200g tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • Bunch coriander, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  • Tiba Tempeh Sweet Chilli Pieces 200g
  • 4-6 tortillas


Optional extras: chilli sauce, sliced jalapeño, vegan cheese or cashew cream.


  1. Start by making the salsa. Combine the chopped tomatoes, red onion and half of the coriander in a bowl. Add the juice of half a lime, salt and pepper. Stir well and set aside.
  2. Then make the guacamole. Peel and mash the avocado, add the juice of half a lime, salt and pepper. Mash well until creamy and set aside.
  3. Now prepare the tempeh filling. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and add the chopped onion. Sauté on a medium heat for about 5 minutes, until they start to caramelise.
  4. Add the chopped peppers and chilli, and cook for another 5-8 minutes until the peppers are soft, stirring frequently.
  5. Add the Tiba Tempeh Sweet Chilli Pieces and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Stir in the other half of the chopped coriander and adjust with salt and pepper.
  6. Finally, warm up the tortillas in a pan. Fill the tacos with the sweet chilli tempeh, top with the guacamole and the salsa, plus any other optional extras.
