My husband came up with this easy tofu scramble after discovering Hatch Green Chile Peppers. Their name comes from the Hatch Valley region in New Mexico and they’re very delicious roasted. The heat levels vary and it’s usually between a jalapeno and a Serrano pepper.
If Hatch chile peppers are not available where you live you can try substituting with Anaheim chile peppers. Check out my post on how to roast peppers in the oven, the method works well for any kind of pepper.
I roast my peppers ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator or the freezer. The peppers actually freeze really well and add a lot of flavor to dishes.
The recipe works well as is or made into tacos. I also like to cool off the dish with slices of avocado or add a little more kick with some salsa.
