My tomato plants continue to produce. I picked a handful and cooked 5 tomatoes with 3 dried Guajillo peppers. Once they were tender, I blended with salt, garlic and my last flour tortilla. It did not want to throw it out so I decided to use it in my sauce. Traditionally, you would make heat oil in a skillet, add flour and make a rue before adding tomato mixture. Today I'm just having fun. And truthfully, I've run out of ways of using these tomatoes.
Immediately, I realized i should have used half the tortilla. live and learn.
I cooked a couple of chicken breast, grated some pepper jack cheese and began to assemble my enchilladas. A traditional recipe requires you to heat the skillet with oil, dip the tortilla, then bath in the sauce, fill and roll. Instead of tradition, I nuked my tortillas in the microwave until they were pliable. Then dipped in sauce, etc.
They are done and well, it's time to taste-test.
I should not have used the entire flour tortilla for this experiment. Instead, I should have used maybe half or 1/4. The sauce was too thick. Hmmm, now what to do with the extra sauce?
I do hate to waste food.
I think this sauce would add an extra layer of flavor to say pork. Yes, I'll freeze and save to use in a crock pot recipe. Certainly cooking in a crock pot with either pork or chicken will thin it out.
So while this recipe was not a success, it was not a fail either.
Freezer it goes.
Hmmm, now what to do with these green tomatoes, bell pepper and wax peppers? Any ideas?
