A vegetarian Mexican food recipe. The Tofu is simmered in a tomato-based sauce and seasoned with chili pepper and herbs.
Cook the Sauce Base:
In a large dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, jalapeño pepper, green bell pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, then cook until soft (for about 4-5 minutes). Keep stirring to prevent burning.
Simmer the Tofu in Rancheros sauce:
Add broth, tomato sauce, and tofu. Bring to a simmer then lower the heat. Cook until the sauce is thickened like a stew for about 30 minutes. Be sure to stir frequently to prevent burning. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
Stir in the cilantro and serve!
