Tofu  
I was aprehensive about trying this recipe at first because enchiladas are a way of life where we live. I made a few variations to this recipe, and it has become a big hit in our house.

This recipe makes 6-8 servings.

You will need:
16-20 corn tortillas

For the enchiladas:
3 lbs. Tofu (freeze, thaw, squeeze out water)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. tomato paste (or tomato sauce)
2 tbsp. peanut butter (as long as you don't use chunky, you will not taste this.)
2 tsp. onion powder (or diced onion)
1 tsp. cumin powder

Mix everything together and brown in 1/2 cup oil over medium heat, turning often. While tofu is browning mix sauce.

Enchilada Sauce:
6 tbsp. chili powder
6 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
Mix together in a saucepan, bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350
Put a layer of torillas dipped in enchilada sauce into a 9x13 baking pan. Sprinkle aprox~ 1 cup tofu mixture onto tortillas. Continue to layer tortillas and tofu until you run out of tofu. Pour remaing enchilada sauce over the last layer and bake for 20-25 minutes or until bubbling.

Another good way to cook tofu is to make it 'scrambled' like you would eggs.

It's really yummy.
