Enchiladas for Breakfast

I love hearty, savory breakfasts! On Sunday night, I scrambled some tofu with black beans to heat up throughout the week as Breakfast Enchiladas:

They're not technically enchiladas because they're covered in peach salsa rather than traditional enchilada sauce. But they look like enchiladas, so that's what I'm callin' 'em.

Each morning this week, I've heated three corn tortillas in a dry skillet and then filled them with the tofu mixture, a little salsa, and shredded Teese. I also sprinkled Teese on top with more salsa because I'm greedy like that. Then I popped them in the microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, and voila, breakfast is on the table.

Bianca's Breakfast Enchiladas
1/2 lb. tofu
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3 to 4 dashes hot sauce
12 corn tortillas
Vegan cheese, shredded (optional)

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and turn on medium heat. Crumble tofu into skillet and mix in seasoning. Cook, stirring often, until any water from the tofu is absorbed and tofu is hot, about 5 minutes.

Add black beans and hot sauce and cook until beans are hot, about 5 minutes.

While tofu/bean mixture is cooking, warm corn tortillas in a dry skillet over low heat. Warm each side for about 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Place about 3 tablespoons of the tofu/bean mixture in the center of each tortilla and roll up. Place rolled tortillas in a baking dish and top with salsa and vegan cheese. Bake about 10 minutes or until vegan cheese is melted (or at least hot … it doesn’t always melt) or microwave for a couple minutes until cheese is melted.

Serves 4-5.

By the way, the super-duper awesome Jenny at Small Space Sweets passed me the Brilliante Weblog Award!

Thanks for the tip about the flour!
I've never used whole wheat pastry flour before, so I'll definitely try that :)

Enchiladas for breakfast sounds like a great idea! Congratulations on your brilliante award :)

Oh! By the way, capsicum is the aussie word for bell peppers. "Pepper" only ever applies to salt's companion; capsicum are the sweet bell's, and chilli is the spicy variety.
