** This recipe is designed to use SILKEN TOFU, not regular tofu. The firm silken tofu delivers the best result.

** Tofu cheese lasts in the fridge for 5-7 days, you can also freeze it up to 1 month.

** If you can’t find canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (usually in the Mexican foods section) substitute your favorite hot sauce!
