How To Make Chipotle Sofritas Tacos

Here’s a healthy take on a tacos recipe. Instead of filling it up with ground meat, we opted for tofu for a meatless experience that’s yummy and guilt-free.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes
Serves:

Ingredients

For the Sofritas Tacos:

  • 14ozextra-firm organic tofudrained
  • corn tortillasor flour tortillas, warmed
  • 2tbspVegetable Oil
  • 1largered bell pepperor poblano pepper, cored and diced
  • 15ozblack beansor pinto beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1cupcrushed tomatoesfire-roasted
  • 1tbspred wine vinegar
  • ½tspground cumin
  • ¼tsporegano
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper

Instructions

For the chipotle sauce:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth. Taste and season with extra salt and black pepper if needed.

For the sofritas tacos:

  1. Roll up the block of tofu in a few layers of paper towels, then place the covered tofu on a plate and place something heavy on top of it to help it drain. Let the tofu drain for at least 15 minutes, replacing the paper towels if they get too wet.

  2. When you’re ready to cook the sofritas, heat the oil over medium-high heat in a stockpot or large saute pan.

  3. Add the tofu and red pepper and saute for 5 to 7 minutes, gently stirring every minute or so, until the tofu is cooked and slightly browned around the edges, and the red pepper is cooked and softened.

  4. Add in the beans and chipotle sauce, and stir to combine. Continue cooking over medium-high heat until the sauce reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 more minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and serve immediately, spooning the sofritas into warmed tortillas, topped with your desired toppings.
