INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prepare the produce

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the cashews and 2¼ cups hot water to a blender. Let the nuts soak for at least 10 minutes. Drain the tofu, pat dry with paper towels, and tear into bite-sized pieces. Peel and dice the onions. Peel and crush the garlic. Dice the tomatoes. Trim, deseed, and dice the bell peppers. Halve the limes. Drain and rinse the black beans.

2
Cook the enchilada filling

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, add the tofu and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the tofu is crispy in places. Transfer the crispy tofu to a large bowl. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the skillet. Once hot, add the diced bell pepper and a pinch of salt. Cook until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the tofu.

3
Start the mole

Place a medium saucepan over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add just half the diced onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the crushed garlic and cook until lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Mexican mole spice and cook until aromatic, about 30 seconds.

4
Finish the mole

Add the mole onions and just 1½ bouillon cubes to the blender with the cashews. Blend the mole sauce until smooth. Return the sauce to the saucepan, no need to rinse, over medium-high heat. Simmer, scraping the bottom and sides, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 3 to 5 minutes.

5
Bake the enchiladas

Spread ¾ cup mole sauce on the bottom of a baking dish. Lay the tortillas on a clean work surface and divide the filling and just half of the black beans between them. Roll the enchiladas and lay them seam-side down into the baking dish. Top with remaining mole sauce, cover with foil, and bake until hot, about 8 to 10 minutes.

6
Serve

Halve the avocados, remove the pits, and dice the flesh. Add the remaining diced onion, diced tomato, juice of 1 lime, remaining black beans, and diced avocado to medium bowl. Toss the avocado salsa to combine. Add the remaining lime juice, sour cream, and a pinch of salt to a small bowl. Stir the lime crema to combine. Top the tofu mole enchiladas with the salsa and crema. Olé!
