Just because you’re worried about your heart doesn’t mean you have to let go of your favorite Mexican dishes. This cheesy Mexican choice is filled with heart-healthy beans.
Yield: 4 servings
Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil and the tofu or chicken. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the tofu and reduce the heat to med-high.
Cook the tofu with the spices for three-four minutes, flipping occasionally with a spatula. Reduce the heat slightly if the spices begin to burn. Add the beans and the vegetable broth and simmer for 10 minutes or until the liquid reduces and a sauce begins to form.
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Cover a baking sheet with foil. Spray one side of half the tortillas with cooking spray and lay on the baking sheet. Divide cheese amongst the tortillas and spoon the tofu mixture over the cheese. Place the remaining tortillas on top and coat with cooking spray.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the tops are golden and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
