Tempeh and Pinto Bean Soft Tacos

I don't like to use fake meat products when cooking but I really like texture in my tacos and burritos. I was introduced to tempeh a few years ago and it was just what I needed to get that ground meat texture. Tempeh is a soy product made out of fermented soy beans and it is a great addition that is packed full of protein. This is a very easy recipe that takes very little time and effort to make.
If you like the tempeh tacos you should try my Black Bean & Tempeh Lettuce Wrap recipe.
Makes 4 -6 servings

1/3 cup onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, diced
8 oz tempeh
1/3 cup water
taco seasoning (see recipe below)
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed 
1 tbs lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

In a saute pan heat 1 tbs of olive oil to low/medium heat. Saute the onions and garlic for 3 minutes. Crumble the tempeh into the pan and add in the taco seasoning and water. Cook on low while you warm up the pinto beans. Place the beans, cilantro and lime juice in a small pot and warm on low. Season with salt and pepper. Once you warm your tortillas and place your toppings on it starting with the tempeh and the beans. Place the rest of your fixins on the tortilla then top with the avocado cream sauce.
