  • Transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat until darkened slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in broth and hominy; simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes more. Season to taste.

  • Meanwhile, pat tofu dry; toss on a rimmed baking sheet with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and taco seasoning. Broil, stirring a few times, until a golden-brown crust forms on tofu in places, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve stew topped with tofu, cilantro leaves, and chopped onion (optional), with lime wedges and tortillas.
