Introduction

From the fantabulous website phamfatale.com. Nutritional data not figured with lettuce or salsa, or cheese or any add-ons.. Recipe originally called for 2 Tb olive oil, but I figured it for 0.5 Tb olive oil.

Note: This is eyebrow-searing levels of heat if you have good cayenne. Knock it down by at least half, maybe more, unless your diet lets you lay on the cheeze.

Ingredients

    .5 Tbs olive oil
    ● 3 shallots, finely sliced
    ● 8 oz black beans, (can), drained
    ● 1/2 pack tofu, slightly boiled, drained
    ● 1/2 cup chunky tomato sauce
    ● 2 tsp garlic powder
    ● 1 tsp cornstarch
    ● 2 tsp cayenne powder
    ● 1 tsp cumin powder
    ● 3 Tbsp water
    ● 1/2 tsp dried oregano
    ● 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    ● 1/2 tsp salt
    ● 1 Tbs cilantro, finely chopped
    ● 1/2 cup iceberg lettuce, shredded
    ● 3 Tbs salsa

Directions

Makes eight 1/4 cup servings (1/4 cup overfills one standard corn tortilla).

Preheat oven to 425F

In a bowl, mix the shredded lettuce with the salsa.

Mash the boiled tofu in a plate and set aside

In a small, bowl, dissolve the cornstarch, the garlic, cayenne and cumin powders in water.

In a medium sauce pan, saute the shallots in the olive oil and cook until the color is slightly golden. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the fried shallots in a bowl. Add the tofu to the sauce pan and cook for about 3 minutes over high heat. Add the tomato sauce, dried oregano, red pepper flakes and salt. When the tomato sauce is hot, add the cornstrach water. Don't forget to stir the cornstarch water one more time before blending it into the tomato sauce, otherwise the sauce will get lumpy. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon. Add the cilantro. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Add the black beans to the bowl with fried shallots and heat in a small sauce pan.

Assemble the tacos. Line a baking sheet with a sheet of aluminum foil. Spoon a little rice, black beans and tofu into each individual taco shell. Sprinkle with cheese. Place the tacos on the baking sheet and heat in the oven for 3 minutes until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven.
