While the tofu is cooking, add the bag of coleslaw mixture to the remaining marinade. Close the lid and shake, making sure all of the coleslaw is covered in the marinade. Set aside.

Fill the warmed tortillas with the tofu strips, marinated coleslaw and mashed avocado. Serve with salsa if using. Enjoy!!
