Mexican Skewers

final

What’s a quick warm weather meal to whip up quickly?  Delicious tofu skewers with onions and peppers.  A little spice to bring everything together, a few minutes of cook time and dinner is ready to go!  Add a side of beans, guacamole or yummy veggies.  Din din is done.   Oh yummy.

WHAT YOU NEED:

– 1 12oz. package of tofu, cubed;
– ¼ onion, quartered into large chunks;
– ½ red bell pepper, cut into large chunks;
-1 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes;
-spice rub: equal parts paprika, chile powder, black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper, cumin and sugar.

WHAT YOU DO:

Mix all ingredients for spice rub.  Sprinkle generously on all sides of the cubed tofu.  Sprinkle spice rub over onions as well.  Take a wooden skewer and thread a tomato, followed by a piece of tofu, onion, red pepper, and repeat until you reach the end of the skewer.  Top off with tomato to secure.
