  • Drain tofu, discarding marinade.

  • Prepare a large skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook tofu, turning frequently, until it starts to brown, about 4 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Return skillet to medium-high heat.

  • Cook and stir jicama, pineapple, remaining 1/4 cup marinade, and 1 tablespoon lime juice in the skillet until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Return tofu to the skillet; cook and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes more.

  • Spoon 1/3 cup tofu mixture evenly down center of each tortilla. Top each with even portions of rice, black beans, and cheese.

  • Fold 2 opposing ends to overlap the edges of the filling. Wrap 1 of the opposing edges of the tortilla over the filling and roll to form a burrito. Top each burrito with salsa and sour cream.

I absolutely love Jamaican Jerk recipes and so the idea of having one made with tofu intrigued me. This was a very good recipe with a bit of clarification. One, the recipe uses the term jerk sauce and jerk marinade indiscriminately. They are two different things. A jerk sauce is used on the finished product for dipping and is usually not very spicy, where a jerk marinade is used in the preparation of the product (usually meat, but in this case tofu), and is usually quite spicy and has flavors of Scotch Bonnet peppers and Allspice. I used Walkerswood Jerk Seasoning (the preferred island seasoning) and diluted it with Italian dressing for my marinade (1 part seasoning, 2 parts Italian dressing). This was perfect for our tastes. The second thing that should be added to this recipe is a quick microwave warm-up after it is assembled, but before the sour cream and salsa. The beans are cold, the shell cold and the cheese cold, and the result is a cold dish. Other than those two things, this recipe is wonderful and I'm sure that I will make it again. Thank you for the new experience. Read More

I made this for one of my meal-prep recipes and did not love it at first bite; but this recipe grew on me and I am a fan! It is very spicy! My husband does not like the texture of tofu so I'll probably make with with chicken marinated in jerk sauce next time. Otherwise this recipe is creative and yummy! Read More
