Gather and portion ingredients. Drain and pat dry the tofu.
Shred the tofu with the large size holes on a box grater.
Add the black beans with about half of their can liquid to a small saucepan. Add salt and cumin. Stir together and heat through.
Add a drizzle of vegetable oil to a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Let brown for about 3-5 minutes before stirring.
Add the taco seasoning to the skillet and mix into the tofu. Cook until heated through and some pieces of tofu are crispy.
