I must’ve been Mexican in my last life because I could happily eat Mexican food every day. When the Chipotle chain came out with their vegan sofritas, which are basically chopped bits of organic tofu in a saucy base, I changed my stance on what fast food could offer.
Still, there’s nothing like home-cooked food for so many reasons. Cooking from scratch lets you use the freshest ingredients in the comfort of your kitchen, tweaked to please your taste-buds.
This dish is easier to prepare than it looks and tastes, especially if you use the salsa shortcut mentioned below. Pair sofritas with some freshly made tortillas, fat avocado slices and a generous helping of cilantro and lime and you’ll be in south of the border heaven.
