cooked copycat chipotle sofritas
Make delicious protein bowl with my copycat Sofritas. It's a Vegan Protein option at Chipotle made from crumbled tofu that has been cooked with a blend of spices and chiles.


  • 1 block extra-firm tofu, (14-16 oz)
  • 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tbsp adobo sauce, (from the can of chipotle peppers)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • First, press the tofu to remove any excess water. To do this, wrap the tofu in paper towels or a clean kitchen towel and place it on a plate. Then, place another plate on top of the tofu and weigh it down with a heavy object, such as a cast-iron skillet or a stack of books. Let the tofu press for at least 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the chipotle peppers. Remove the peppers from the can and chop them finely. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the adobo sauce, olive oil, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.
  • Once the tofu has finished pressing, crumble it into small pieces with your hands or a fork.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the crumbled tofu to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the tofu starts to brown and crisp up.
  • Add the chopped chipotle peppers and the spice mixture to the skillet. Stir everything together until the tofu is well-coated with the spices.
  • Pour the water into the skillet and stir everything together. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the liquid has been absorbed by the tofu.
  • Pour the water into the skillet and stir everything together. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the liquid has been absorbed by the tofu.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir everything together one more time. Your Sofritas are now ready to be served!


Chef’s notes:

  1. If you like your Sofritas spicier, you can add more chipotle peppers or even a dash of cayenne pepper.
  2. Sofritas can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat, simply warm them up in the microwave or on the stove.
