"Huevos" Rancheros

 8 corn tortillas
 2 (14 oz) cans whole or diced tomatoes in juice
 ½ cup white onion, chopped
 ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus additional for sprinkling
 1 tbsp chopped canned chipotle chiles in adobo
 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
 1 tsp salt
 1 (16 oz) package firm or extra firm tofu

Warm each tortilla on both sides in a non-stick skillet or over a medium flame on a gas stove. Stack warmed tortillas and wrap loosely in foil and keep warm in oven.


Puree tomatoes with their juice, together with onion, cilantro, chipotle, garlic, and salt in a blender until very smooth. Add mixture to a pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, until salsa is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.


While salsa is cooking, drain the tofu, and press dry with a paper towel. Cut into thin strips and place in a nonstick skillet, lightly sprayed with oil. Sprinkle with salt. Turn with spatula when golden and sprinkle other side with salt. Cook until both sides are golden.


Place two tortillas on a plate, add two strips of tofu, fold tortilla in half. Spoon salsa over the tortillas and sprinkle with cilantro.


Serve with beans and sliced avocado.
