Chipotle Chilaquiles

Chilaquiles is an old and classic Mexican. It is usually made with corn tortillas cut in quarters and deep fried. Mole or salsa is normally covering the totopos.

  • 4 Chipotles in Adobo, chopped
  • 2-3 TBS Garlic Zinger
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • .5 C chicken stock
  • 4 eggs, beat
  • 1 C shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chopped cilantro (optional – garnish)
  • 6 tortillas, cut into 8 “pizza slices”
  • Vegetable Oil

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 300F
  • Add tomatoes, chipotles, garlic, onion and chicken stock to a blender and puree.
  • Add puree sauce mix to a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil. Fry the tortilla slices a few seconds per side until soft.
  • Drain on paper towels and then line a 8×8 casserole dish with tortilla slices.
  • Add the sauce to the eggs. Then layer the egg mixture and cheese. You should have 3 layers of each.

  3. If using ultra lean beef lightly grease a loaf pan. (Higher fat beef yields enough rendered fat to prevent sticking in my experience)
  4. Bake for about 55 minutes.
  5. After 55 minutes remove from oven, Pour/brush glaze over loaf, convering entirely and bake for another 20 minutes.
  6. Let rest for 10-15 minutes to allow it to firm up before cutting.
  7. Side serving recommendations are steamed or blanched broccoli, tater tots or mashed potatoes and for the kids, chocolate milk.

Chiles Rellenos Recipe

Read this if you ask your self “How do I use Poblano or Anaheim Peppers?”

Chiles rellenos is an old Mexican dish produced with poblano or Anaheim peppers that are stuffed and then deep fried after being dipped in batter. The name of this dish actually means “stuffed chiles” in Spanish. The actual stuffing varies from place to place, and reigions sometimes put their own mark on this old Mexican recipe. If you are interested in making this classic mexican dish, and you can handle a little heat (or a lot), here is a delicious way to make chiles rellenos. This chiles rellenos recipe was handed down to me by a friend and so on. This is a great recipe to use if you want to make chiles rellenos for the first time.

Directions:

  1. Char chiles over gas flame or under broiler, turning to blacken
    all over. Place in a paper bag, close, and let steam for 15 minutes.
    Rub off skin. Cut lengthwise, stopping about 1/2 inch from the tip.
    Scrape out veins and seeds.
  2. Stuff each chile with a 3 inch by 1 inch stick of monterey jack.
    Dredge chiles in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. This is very important for chiles rellenos.

    Beat yolks, then fold into whites. Working quickly, dip chiles in
    eggs to coat.
  4. Fry chiles in 1 inch of hot oil in a large skillet, turning to
    brown evenly. Drain on paper towels. Serve with red chile sauce.
