Green Chili

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 onion, finely diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 7 oz. cans of Ortega Green Chiles
2 cups of veggie broth (I use Better Than Bouillon)
1 tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon of water
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
Heat oil in a medium-sized saucepan on medium-high.
Saute onions until translucent, about 7 minutes.
Add garlic and cook and stir until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Add green chiles and stir. Cook 3 minutes more.
Add broth and cornstarch slurry.
Stir until thickened and then turn down the heat to low.
Cook for 10 minutes more, stirring occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pan.

Instructions:
Slice tofu into 1 cm square cubes.
Heat oil in large saucepan on high.
When shimmering, add tofu.
Stir until tofu has developed a golden brown crust.

Saute summer squash

Heat tortillas in cast iron (no oil) until they soften.
Smear with potatoes and/or beans.
