Healthy Mexican Tofu Recipe

This healthy Mexican vegetarian recipe serves 4 and is as spicy as you want it to be, based on your salsa’s heat.

1 (16 oz) jar Chi-Chi’s Salsa- Medium

1 (10 oz) bag Cascadian Farm organic whole kernel corn

  3. Heat oil in skillet.
  4. Add tofu and sear on all sides.
  5. Add all other ingredients and stir.
