Spicy Chipotle Tofu

Spicy Chipotle Tofu


Serves 2-4

  • 12 Oz Extra Firm Tofu

  • 1 Whole Chipotle Pepper

  • 1 Tbsp Adobe Sauce (from canned chipotles)

  • 1/4 Tsp Dry Oregano

  • 1/4 Tsp Cumin

  • 1 Lime (juiced)

  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro (chopped)

  • 3 Garlic (peeled)

  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar

  • 1/4 Cup Avocado Oil

  • Sea Salt (to taste)

  • 2 Tbsp All Purpose Flour

  • 2 Tbsp Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil


  1. Tightly wrap tofu in an absorbent towel and lay something heavy on top. I used a cast iron skillet. Let it sit for 10 minutes to remove extra liquid and give room for the marinate. Unwrap tofu and cut into cubes, I like mine in bite size pieces.

  2. In your food processor combine all ingrediets, taste and add salt to taste. In a medium bowl, combine tofu cubes with sauce. Allow to marinate for at least 2 hours, but can be done the night before.

  3. Once the tofu is marinated, add tofu to a large zip lock bag and toss with 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour.   

  4. Heat up a large skillet or cast iron over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of avocado oilor coconut oil. Once the oil is hot add 1/3 of the tofu that has been coated in cornstarch and allow to cook for 1 minute per side.

  5. Do this in 3 batches adding additional avocado oil if needed. I drain tofu on a plate lined with paper towels to remove extra oil.

  6. Serve with rice (optional) and your favorite roasted veggie, enjoy!
