I know tofu and enchiladas seem like an absolute Mexican food sin, but I’m lactose intolerant, so being a lover of cheese enchiladas can get pretty depressing. That’s why when I discovered Trader Joe’s black bean and corn enchiladas in their frozen section I was forever sold. The tofu they use in these enchiladas almost acts like a cheese substitute because of it’s texture, and because they are packed with veggies, they are also healthy. I have been determined to throw these together myself so that I didn’t have to keep stocking up on the frozen ones for lunch at work.
Last week, I ventured to Trader Joe’s for the sole purpose of reading the list of ingredients on the back of the frozen tofu enchilada package, and then purchasing everything I needed right then and there to recreate them. They turned out fresher and extremely similar to the frozen ones, and I couldn’t have been more excited. —Dionna Mash
