  • Spicy Tofu Sofritas

    Recipe adapted from Pinch of Yum.


    • 1 poblano pepper
    • 1–3 individual chipotle peppers canned in adobo sauce (1 for mild/medium, 3 for very spicy)
    • 2 TBSP of the adobo sauce
    • 2–3 cloves garlic
    • 2 tsp. cumin
    • 1 tsp. chili powder or smoked paprika
    • 1/2 c. of your favorite salsa

    • 1 14–oz. package extra firm tofu
    • 1/2 c. water
    • Lime juice, to taste


    1. Roast your poblano: Turn your oven to the broil setting, place poblano on a baking sheet, and roast for 15 minutes at a time until it’s soft and blistered. Once blistered place in ziploc bag and close for about 15 minutes. After 15 mintues, remove poblano from bag and peel of skins and remove seeds. 
    2. Make a sofritas sauce: Place poblano, chipotles, garlic, spices, and salsa in a small blender or food processor (EXCEPT tofu). Pulse until a mostly smooth paste forms.
    3. Make the sofritas tofu: Slice the tofu and press with a clean towel to remove as much excess moisture as you can (the drier the tofu, the better it soaks up the sauce). Heat a drizzle of oil over medium high heat. Scramble the tofu into small bits with a spatula or wooden spoon. You can do beans or no beans – this is a choose your own adventure here. Add the sofritas sauce with 1/2 c. water. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce is richly colored and thickened slightly. Add more water as necessary, and season to taste with the salt and lime juice.

  • Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken Tacos

    This chicken is delicious in tacos, and then I used the leftovers for taco salad the next day. Chicken would also work great for burritos.

    Recipe adapted from Carlsbad Cravings.


    • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 TBSP olive oil
    • 1 c. Herdez mild or medium salsa verde 
    • 1/3-1/2 c. honey
    • 1/2 c. lime juice
    • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
    • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
    • 1/2 tsp. cumin
    • 1/4 tsp. pepper


    1. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add all of the remaining ingredients . Cook on HIGH for 2-4 hours or on LOW for 6-7 hours or until chicken is tender enough to shred.
    2. Remove chicken to a cutting board, and let rest 5 minutes before shredding (there will be a lot of liquid remaining).
    3. Return shredded chicken and let cook on low for an additional 20-30 minutes to absorb some of the liquid/juices. Drain excess liquid before serving or use tongs to remove shredded chicken. Taste and add more honey for sweeter, lime for more tang.

  • Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas

    Recipe from the Stay at Home Chef.


    • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • 7 oz. diced green chiles
    • 1 TBSP lime juice
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1/2 tsp. chile powder
    • 1/2 c. freshly chopped cilantro
    • 3 c. diced cooked chicken
    • 1 c. sour cream
    • 16 oz. salsa verde
    • 10 8-inch flour tortillas (or 12 corn tortillas)
    • 2 c. shredded monterey jack or mozzarella cheese
    • Cilantro, chopped
    • Serve with rice and beans


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan.
    2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with a hand mixer until it’s light and fluffy, about 60 seconds. Use a spoon or rubber spatula to stir in green chiles, lime juice, salt, cumin, chile powder, and cilantro until well combined. Fold in cooked chicken.
    3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together sour cream and salsa verde until combined. Place a large spoonful of the salsa verde mixture into the bottom of the prepared 9×13 pan and spread it out in a light, even layer, just enough to wet the bottom of the pan.
    4. Assemble enchiladas by placing a big scoop if the chicken filling onto the center of a tortilla. Roll up the tortilla, tucking in the ends as you go. Lay it in the pan. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
    5. Pour the remainder of the salsa verde mixture over the top of the assembled enchiladas. Sprinkle the monterey jack cheese over the tops of the enchiladas to cover.
    6. Bake in the preheated 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Place under the broiler setting for 2-3 minutes for extra browning. Garnish with more freshly chopped cilantro if desired.
