"CHICKEN"-STYLE TOFU FAJITAS

Makes: 8 fajitas (2 fajitas per serving)
In this super-easy, nearly-instant tortilla recipe, chewy baked tofu stands in for chicken. Letting the kids make their own fajitas becomes part of the fun!

  • 8 fajita-size (6- to 7-inch) flour tortillas
  • 10- to 12-ounce package baked tofu, cut into strips
  • Prepared salsa, your favorite brand
  • 1 cup plain low-fat organic yogurt or soy yogurt
  • 2 cups finely shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese or cheddar-style nondairy cheese, optional

Wrap the entire batch of tortillas in foil and warm in a preheated 400-degree oven or toaster oven.

Place the tofu strips on a plate and microwave briefly until well warmed, about 3 minutes.

Spread a little salsa and yogurt down the center of each tortilla, then arrange a few tofu strips over them. Sprinkle with some lettuce, and if desired, a little cheese. Roll up snugly and eat out of hand.
