    Can substitute spiced tofu for smoked tofu.

    We love this dish! If you can get Laoganma black bean sauce, try this dish. This sauce is what makes the dish! This tofu dish will be a regular rotation in my dinner menu! The recipe uses dried chillies, which are snipped to half to remove the seeds as much as possible. I think the next time I will use coarse pepper flakes, for added spiciness. Go easy on the whole Sichuan pepper, which can be very pungent to the taste. I use only 1/4 tsp and it was just right for us. Delicious dish!
