From the Test Kitchen

The word “fajita” comes from the Spanish word “faja,” meaning strip or band. Here, you’ll use strips of seasoned tofu and sear them in a signature blend of seasonings. Warm, toasted cumin, fennel, chili powder and cinnamon infuse this dish with traditional flavors. You’ll also garnish it with delicious, simple, handmade guacamole.

Tofu Fajitas with Fresh Guacamole & Whole Wheat Tortillas
Title
  • 1 12-Ounce Package Tofu
  • 1 bunch Cilantro

  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Avocado
  • ¼ cup Low-Fat Sour Cream
  • 4 6-Inch Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • 2 tsps Fajita Spice Blend (Chili Powder, Cumin, Ground Fennel & Cinnamon)
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:
Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and pat dry the tofu, then cut lengthwise into strips. Season the tofu strips with salt and pepper and toss with the fajita spice blend. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Peel and mince the garlic, then, using the side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste. Remove and discard the stem, seeds and ribs of the bell peppers; thinly slice the bell peppers. Cut the lime into quarters. Peel and cut the onion in half; thinly slice one half and small dice the other.
Make the guacamole:
2 Make the guacamole:
Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scoop the avocado out of the peel into a medium bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado until smooth. Stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges, half the cilantro (roughly chopping before adding), as much of the diced red onion as you’d like and a pinch of the garlic (save the rest of the red onion and garlic for the vegetables). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook the tofu:
3 Cook the tofu:
In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned tofu strips and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Transfer the browned tofu strips to a plate and wipe out the pan.
Cook the peppers & onion:
4 Cook the peppers & onion:
In the same pan used to cook the tofu, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the peppers, sliced onion, remaining diced onion and remaining garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until softened. Transfer the cooked vegetables to the plate of cooked tofu and wipe out the pan.
Warm the tortillas:
5 Warm the tortillas:
In the same pan, warm the tortillas on medium-high for 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, or until soft and pliable. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a plate and cover with a paper towel to keep warm.
