The best part of warm weather is the outdoor activities! From playing soccer, gardening, as well as grilling. Oh, and we cannot wait to get out and grill!

Soaking up this beautiful weather after a long winter indoors, we break out the grill, and this time we used Pellets. They are made with all-natural, pure flavor hardwoods and absolutely no fillers, binders or preservatives, bringing out the best flavor you could ask.

Tex-Mex Grilled Tofu Quesadillas

Tex-Mex Grilled Tofu Quesadillas are easy to make and amazingly tasty. Now everyone could enjoy and celebrate meatless meals together because my quesadillas are delightfully delicious.

Ingredients

  • 6 soft tortillas
  • 1 pounds Firm Tofu
  • 1 cup Guacamole
  • 1/2 cup Pico de gallo
  • 2 cups Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Refried beans
  • 1 tablespoon of oil

Tofu Seasoning:

  • 1/4 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp Spanish paprika powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

Instructions

Seasoning:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the season and set aside.

Tofu Prep:

  1. Open tofu package drain water out and
    take each block of tofu and wrap with thick layers of kitchen paper towels or a
    clean cotton towel. Press slightly and pat dry. Make sure that most of the
    moisture is gone.    
  2. Slice into 1/2-inch thick tofu slices,
    and again pat dry each slab with paper towels.
  3. Add to the large and flat plate, then
    sprinkle on both sides with prepared seasoning, gently press to coat. Cover and
    refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Grill Prep:

  1. Open your pellets bag. I used Classic which is great for almost anything you want in your grill. Flavorful
    and strong. Wood pellets are poured into a storage container also known as a
    hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by an auger that is
    powered by electricity.
  2. When ready to cook, smoke setting with
    the lid open.
  3. Wait for the fire to start about 5 min, depending
    on the grill type and model.
  4. Now, close the lid and increase the
    temperature to the desired temperature and preheat for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. I cooked tofu on 350F, so my grill
    temperature was set to 350 degrees.


Grilling:

  1. Place tofu in the preheated and ready to
    cook grill to get infused with a real wood smoky flavor.
  2. Grill for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Take it off the grill and start
    assembling. Do not turn the grill off yet.

Assembling and making quesadillas:

  1. On one side of the tortilla evenly spread
    about 1 tablespoon or so of guacamole, spindle freshly chopped pico de gallo, a
    handful of cheese then place grilled tofu on the top. Depending on the side of
    your tortilla, I would say about 4 to 5 slices to cover it. Add just a sprinkle
    more cheese.
  2. On the other tortilla spread about a
    tablespoon or two of retired beans, then cover the other tortilla with tofu.
    Making a sandwich. Lightly press and brush with oil.
  3. Continue until tofu is gone. You could
    make approximately 3 quesadillas with my method.
  4. Place each quesadilla on the hot grill
    and grill for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until the cheese is melted
    and grill marks are formed.
  5. Slice each quesadilla across making
    trundles and serve immediately with salsa, pico de gallo, and other fixings.
