    This has been a long time favourite for our family, even my 2 yr old and 3 yr old love this. We put the leftovers over nachos with some cheese, tomatoes, green peppers and onions. Oooh yummy!

    1. 1
      Crumble the tofu to small bits (this can take a bit of time).
    2. 2
      Heat oil in frying pan and add tofu and chili powder (added to taste, I add tons, about 4-5 tbsp).
    3. 3
      Cook on medium high heat until tofu is crispy.
    4. 4
      Add garlic and onion and cook 5-7 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add tomatoes, a dab of ketchup (the more you add the sweeter it will be so omit it if you don't like sweet) and a dab of mustard and a drizzle of extra oil if you like.
    6. 6
      Let simmer, bubbling until sauce is thickened and tofu is tasty (about 30 minutes).
    7. 7
      I like to give it a lot of time to simmer so it's really tasty.
    8. 8
      Serve on whole wheat buns with salad and homemade fries.
    9. 9

      This was such a big hit in my family, that I was asked to make it three times in two weeks and my partner is a very picky eater. To help the tofu crisp a little bit i added 1 tbspn cornstarch to the chili powder as i mixed it into the tofu. i also found using a potato masher gave me a head start in breaking it into tiny little pieces. They have come out juicy and great tasting everytime. We serve it over fritos with some cheese and sour cream on top.

      A nice recipe, but nothing special -- it's nice as a filler, but I didn't think the taste was that good. Nice structure.

      This was my second attempt at working with tofu. I was unable to get the tofu to crisp, which was not too unexpected, but I was fine with the results - not crispy, but not soggy either. <br/>My wife thought it tasted more like a chicken parm dish. I didn't disagree and that taste was just fine by us. Although the meal was not anything amazing in our eyes, it will definitely come to the table again! It was easy to make and fairly enjoyable to eat. Next time. I'll try adding the Worcestershire sauce, as others have mentioned, and some corn, some low fat cheddar and a bit of hot sauce.
