Tofu Tacos

Category: Main Dishes - Other

Suitable for a: vegan diet



1/2 onion, chopped, or 1 tablespoon onion powder

2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 small bell pepper, diced (optional)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1/2 pound firm tofu, crumbled (about 1 cup)

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)

1/4 teaspoon each: cumin and dried oregano

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/4 cup tomato sauce

6 corn tortillas

Sauté the onion, garlic, and bell pepper in oil for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the tofu, chili powder, yeast, cumin, oregano, and soy sauce. Cook for 3 minutes, then add the tomato sauce and simmer over low heat until the mixture is fairly dry.

Heat the tortillas in a heavy, ungreased skillet, turning each from side to side until soft and pliable. Place a small amount of the tofu mixture in the center of each tortilla, fold in half, and garnish, if desired.

1 1/2 tbsp. butter

1/2 cup milk

1 oz. cream cheese,

cubed 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese,

shredded 1/8 cup monterey jack,

1. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, melt butter and stir in corn starch.

2. Pour in the milk, add cream cheese, and continue to stir until mixture is fully incorporated.

3. While stirring mix in cheddar and jack cheeses, chili powder, paprika, and hot pepper sauce.

4. Continue to stir until cheese has melted and all ingredients are well blended.

5. Pour over tortilla chips.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was pretty good, except next time I'm going to use taco seasoning instead of the chili powder. Thanks!
