Breakfast Tacos

A family who cooks together enjoys spending time together. Brandon enjoys cooking and recently he made a recipe that he found on the Internet. He converted it to vegetarian and made a few other adjustments for his tastes. Yum, was it ever good! It's now on the 'family favorites' list. Brandon made this recipe twice last week and I'm sure he'll make it again soon!

Breakfast Tacos

Part 1
Flour Tortillas

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup warm water

Blend flour, salt, baking powder, and shortening together until the texture of coarse cornmeal. Slowly add water until dough is soft (more water may be needed, but don't use too much). Knead dough and then form into 8 -10 balls the size of golf balls. Set aside for 20 minutes with a damp cloth over the surface to keep from drying out.

Filling A

4 - 6 potatoes
olive oil

Peel potatoes and dice into cubes. Fry in olive oil in a hot skillet. Season to taste. Use medium-high heat, as the centers of the potato pieces need time to soften. High heat will brown edges before centers are done. Set aside when done.

Filling B

4 corn tortillas
olive oil

Dice four corn tortillas into squares. Fry in olive oil in a hot skillet. Set aside when browned.

Filling C

1 block extra-firm tofu, crumbled
1 sweet onion
1/2 cup chopped olives
2 oz. pimento peppers
1 Tbsp. chicken-style seasoning*
olive oil

*Bill's Best Chicknish or McKay's Chicken-Style Seasoning are both vegetarian

Crumble tofu into a small bowl. Add chicken-style seasoning and stir together. Set aside. In a hot skillet, heat olive oil and saute' onion. When soft, add crumbled tofu. Fry until browned. Add pimento peppers and black olives. Remove from heat and set aside.

Prepare the flour tortillas. Flatten each ball between hands and then use a rolling pin to form a thin cake. Bake on a hot, dry skillet. When the first side starts to bubble and brown, turn and brown the top-side.

Prepare breakfast tacos by placing a portion of the potato topping, the corn tortilla topping, and tofu topping in the center. Fold over and garnish as desired with cilantro, red pepper sauce, and olives.

*For gluten-free option, prepare as given, but omit the flour tortilla and use a corn tortilla as a replacement.
