Vegan Mexican 10-Layer Dip Shown in Glass Bowl, which Reveals layers

Ingredients

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • ½ (14-ounce) package extra-firm silken tofu, drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • sea salt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can refried black beans (1½ cups)
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 2 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, cut into small dice
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen (and thawed) corn
  • ½ avocado, diced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon seeded and sliced jalapeño (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into bite-size triangles and bake them on a baking sheet until crisp, 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the drained tofu, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and cayenne pepper (if using) in a blender; season with salt to taste. Purée until smooth. Chill the tofu “sour cream” until ready to use.
  3. Combine the refried beans, garlic powder, cumin, and oregano in a saucepan and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if needed to help combine.
  4. Spread the beans in the base of a serving dish. Top with the salsa, followed by the lettuce, scallions, tomatoes, corn, and tofu sour cream, along with any optional ingredients. Scatter sliced olives over the dip, then serve with tortilla chips.

My best tip is to use a 9×13 or close baking pan. The layers are thinner but there are 10 of them… you want to get as many layers as possible on your chip – having thin layers is best! If it was in a bowl you couldn’t scoop it out properly

Extra firm silken tofu??? Shouldn’t it be silken tofu?

Not really. “…Silken tofu is the next most common tofu style. It’s made in a similar process to block tofu, except that the soy milk is coagulated without curdling the milk. It’s also left unpressed, so every cake retains all of its moisture while cooling. Because curds never form, the tofu—be it soft, firm, or extra firm—has a smooth and “silky” appearance.” – https://www.seriouseats.com/shopping-cooking-guide-different-tofu-types
