Ok I had you waiting there for a whole five minutes until I posted this one. So where did we leave off? Now you have a yummy breakfast all ready for you to eat. I'm sure that it would be delicious if you went ahead and ate it there. However, your meal is not complete!
This guacamole is unlike any other I have had. Usually, they come sealed in little packages as either regular guacamole or spicy guacamole. Then you have to buy pico de gallo or salsa. This has both AND the pico de gallo is hot too! So I literally scooped up a big spoonful of this amazing creation onto my plate and I had an amazing meal.
This guac is really good, and if you haven't tried TJ's other guacamoles, this tastes essentially the same, plus a little fresh spice to go along with it. Try it, buy it, and let me know what you think about it!
Ok so I have never had pork chorizo because, well, I was raised Jewish so I tend to shy away from things made from pigs (well, except for pepperoni...) But this is so good! Super spicy, so much flavor and it's actually vegan.
So how did I turn this into an amazing breakfast? Ok, to begin with, I sprayed a frying pan with TJs canola oil spray. Next, I took the Melange a Trois trio of bell peppers and added it to the pan. I crumbled up some tofu and then I put some chorizo in a pan. I let it cook for a while until it was all hot and cooked thoroughly.
I then added it to some TJs black beans I cooked in a pot on the stove
I plated all of this with some freshly toasted tortillas
Last but not least, I added.....wait.....wait....see my next post!
So these are really awesome tortillas! They also come in regular white flour tortillas as well. They are really soft, so that is a good thing, well made and delicious! Especially heated up! They are super good with my wonderful breakfast. This is the first installment! For this breakfast, I toasted the tortillas in my toaster oven, getting them slightly crispy.

I took 1/2 block of TJ's extra firm tofu, weighed it on the top with paper towels in between to blot out the water and cut it into triangles. I put them in a non-stick pan sprayed with TJs canola oil spray (which I really like...more on that later!). I let them turn a golden color
I took a bag of TJ's stir-fry vegetables, and I placed them in a pan with canola oil spray to defrost them
I added the noodles to that same pan
I combined all of the ingredients together and added the packet of sauce.
I let them cook together briefly
I added some spiracha (thai hot sauce)
Ta-da! I had a meal! For under 5 dollars might I add...
The verdict on the noodles/sauce? It wasn't phenomenal BUT adding spiracha really made a difference. I think that with the right amount of spiracha or some other TJs sauce, this could be an amazing meal. They also have two other flavors. I may try them as well!

This is a really good trail mix that is really good for you! Walnuts, almonds, raisins, cashews, filberts all come together to pack in 5g of protein for every 150 calories. Not bad if you ask me! And it is all raw! I don't generally embrace raw food, but this stuff is good. And worth it. For about 5 dollars, you get 15 servings....and you won't have a problem eating them either!!
Oh and if you are actually athletic and go hiking, this would probably be a good fit for you :)
