Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Tofu

    Drain tofu. Line a plate with paper towels. Cut tofu into 1" dice and place on towel-lined plate. Top with paper towels, then press gently but firmly to remove excess moisture.

    Add tofu, cornstarch, blackening seasoning, and 1/4 tsp. salt to a mixing bowl. Gently toss until coated.

  2. 2

    Cook the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Let oil heat, 1 minute.

    After 1 minute, add bell peppers and tofu to hot pan and stir occasionally until peppers are tender and tofu is lightly golden, 6-8 minutes.

    Don't rush cooking the tofu; it will need the complete cooking time for the correct texture.

    Remove from burner. Season with a pinch of salt.

    While filling cooks, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Stem cilantro and tear leaves.

    In another mixing bowl, combine cabbage, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, cilantro, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Warm Tortillas and Finish Dish

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds.

    If tortillas come folded, keep folded.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling tortillas with slaw and filling and topping with a dollop of sour cream and guacamole. Squeeze lime wedges over to taste. Bon appétit!
