For the Corn Chips:

  • 2 tablespoons sunflower or grapeseed oil plus more to cook the onion
  • 3 to 4 corn tortillas, cut into eight wedges

For the Cheese Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk (not coconut)
  • 2 teaspoon vegan butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped or minced
  • 1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
  • 10 ounces firm tofu
  • Vegan grated cheese to serve  (optional)
  • Salsa to serve
  • Fresh coriander to serve
  • Avocado slices to serve
  • Fresh lime to serve


  1. To make the corn chips, heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat until it bubbles when sprinkled with a little water. Add the tortilla wedges and fry, for around 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until they are toasted and golden. Add a little more oil if needed. When crisp, remove from the pan and rest the tortillas on a paper towel.
  2. To make the cheese sauce, add the flour, nutritional yeast, paprika, cumin, mustard powder and salt to a dry saucepan over low heat and toast for 2 minutes.
  3. After 2 minutes, slowly pour in the dairy-free milk while stirring constantly.
  4. Continue stirring until the sauce thickens before adding the vegan butter. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. To bring the meal together, heat a splash of oil in a non-stick pan over low to medium heat and add the garlic and onion.
  6. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion is soft and beginning to brown. Then add the fried corn chips.
  7. Crumble the tofu into the pan and toss it through, following with 3 tablespoons of the “cheese” sauce.
  8. Keep the heat on while stirring until the tofu is heated through. Finish with a good drizzle of the cheese sauce and your choice of vegan cheese and salsa. Serve with fresh coriander, avocado slices and a squeeze of lime.
