Versatile, use what you have on hand
1 tsp EVOO

About 1/2 bag of tortilla chips (you'll need to eye ball this)
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
Chopped cherry tomatoes
Prepare pickled onions and homemade taco seasoning according to recipes.
In a large skillet over medium heat, warm EVOO. Meanwhile, crumble tofu with a fork (see picture below).
When oil is hot, add tofu and taco seasoning and mix to combine. Let cook untouched for about 5-7 minutes, until browned. Then flip and brown other sides.
Add beans, corn, and salsa. Mix well and cook for 3 minutes.
Spread chips over top of the tofu mixture, then sprinkle with cheese.
Broil for 2 to 3 minutes until cheese in bubbling and lightly browned (keep an eye on it though, it will go from brown to burnt quickly).

Kid tip: If your kids don't like mixed foods, reserve some ingredients before combining, like the tofu, corn, beans, and toppings, and serve a la carte!
