Instructions

Sofritas

  • For more details, visit our Copycat Chipotle Sofritas recipe.
  • Use a firm tofu and press it. Pat it dry with a paper towel.
  • Fry thin tofu slices with a bit of olive oil until golden brown. Use a food processor to chop the fried tofu.
  • Add all marinade ingredients to a food processor and chop them until chunky.
  • Marinate the tofu crumbles for 30 minutes.
  • Take a cast-iron skillet or a frying pan as well and heat it over medium heat. If you feel the sauce became too thick at the end of the marinating time, add a bit of veggie broth. Start with ¼ cup (0,5dl). Add the marinated tofu crumbles and cook for about 10 minutes.

Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice

  • Cook rice according to package instructions.
  • Once the rice is cooled, add freshly squeezed lime juice, freshly chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

Tomato and Corn Salsa

  • Wash and chop cherry tomatoes into quarters. Drain canned sweet corn. Peel and finely chop red onion and garlic.
  • Mix all chopped ingredients in a small bowl. Add freshly chopped cilantro and olive oil. Stir until combined.

Pan-fried Fajitas Veggies

  • The EASIEST way to make fajitas veggies is in a sheet pan. For detailed steps, top tips, video, and more guidance visit our Fajita Veggies post. However, if we need only 1-2 servings we usually make pan-fried veggies in 5 minutes.
  • Peel and slice onion ¼-inch (4-5 mm) wide. Wash and slice bell peppers also ¼-inch (4-5 mm) wide.
  • Pre-heat a frying pan on medium heat. Add olive oil.
  • Once the oil is hot enough add the onion and the bell pepper slices and sprinkle them with fajitas spice mix. Stir to combine and fry them for 5 minutes until they are tender.

Guacamole

  • Take a ripe avocado. Cut them in half and turn it with your hands around the seed. Spoon the soft avocado flesh into a small bowl. Mash it with your fork.
  • Peel and finely chop the red onion. Squeeze a bit of lime juice. Chop fresh cilantro leaves.
  • Add all chopped ingredients plus lime juice and salt to the mashed avocado and mix well.
