Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup chopped white or sweet onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup canned fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (or water or juice from tomato can, if you want these extra spicy)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 ounce) container extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed.

For serving:

  • 810 tortillas
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Make the sauce: Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until soft, about 5-8 minutes. Add in the garlic, chipotle peppers, oregano, cumin, tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring often.
  2. Add the mixture to a high-powered blender along with the broth and salt and puree until smooth.
  3. Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Crumble the tofu and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add in the sauce and cook for 5-8 minutes until sauce has thickened and mixture is hot.
  4. Serve: Warm the tortillas, then top with tofu tinga mixture, avocado and cilantro, if using. Eat!
