Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Something I concocted this weekend. I made monkfish enchiladas with this: Place chiles in a glass bowl. Cover with boiling water for 10-15 minutes to reconstitute. Drain. Puree in blendor or food processor or molcajete. Reserve Toast pumpkin seeds. Toast sesame seeds. Grind them finely. Add these with other dry ingredients to chile puree. Saute onions in peanut oil til nearly caramelized. Add chilepaste & peanut butter. Saute for 10-15 minutes, adjusting fluid with chicken stock or beer as needed. Use as an enchilada sauce or use as a base to cook chicken, fish, shrimp, pork, venison in a guisado.pipian. "Theodore B. Samsel" CHILE-HEADS ARCHIVES From the Chile-Heads recipe list.
