Hello omnivores, carnivores, and herbivores!
Today, we look at my craving for sweet potatoes. Recently, I saw
a recipe for sweet potato quesadillas. That idea stuck in my
cauliflower of a brain and mutated into Sweet Potato Enchiladas
with Mole Sauce! Nummmmy!
Now, here's what you'll need:
11" x 7" baking dish
1 large frying pan
1 small saucepot
1 large bowl
(flour worked better than corn but it's up to you, bubbelah)
2 medium/large sweet potatoes; washed, peeled, and grated
1 small white onion; diced or grated
2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2 cups chicken (or veggie) broth
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons mole paste (I happen to use Dona Maria brand)
2 tablspoons (packed) brown sugar
1/2 pound of quesadilla cheese; grated or cut into slices
(or any Mexican melting cheese)
Sour cream (optional)
In the saucepot, over low heat, warm up your broth. Add the
mole paste, sugar, and the cocoa to the broth, when it's warm.
Stir occasionally until it simmers (tiny bubbles along the edge
of the pot). Turn off heat and leave covered.
Put the oil in your frying pan and turn to medium high heat.
When oil is hot, add sweet potatoes, onion, cumin, salt, and
pepper. Keep stirring the potatoes to heat throughout and mix
spices and onion evenly. Cook for 7 minutes or until potatoes
are tender. Transfer to bowl and cover.
Take two tortillas, one on top of the other, and quickly dunk
them in the mole sauce. Lay tortilla out and fill with approximately
1/4 cup of the potato mixture and some cheese. Roll tight and lay
into the baking dish. You should wind up with 10 enchildas. Pour
over additional mole sauce, if desired, and sprinkle cheese on
top. Cover dish with aluminium foil and put into 325 degree F oven
for 20 minutes. Serve with sour cream.
Serves 3 - 4
Of course, you could add some bits of chicken, or other meat,
to this if you had it laying about and were so inclined.
So that's my recipe for today, I hope you enjoy it. Write and let
me know what you'd like to see cooked or ask a cooking/food question.
I may just answer you!
Yours in butterfat,
