I finally got around to making these this morning. I’ve been going to do it for ages, today is the day! To save you any suspense, these are so damn good I still have tears in my eyes. [Can’t rule out the jalapenos-Ed]
I’ve seen pictures of the dish, and the recipes I’ve looked at seem to allow for a lot of variation. The core of the dish are the tortillas, eggs, refried beans, and a condiment or two. Or several. Today’s interpretation resulted not so much from detailed research and polling as from a survey of my pantry and fridge.
I found some of my home made chorizo and fried some of that. Made some refried beans. I can easily find chunky tomato salsas at the store so I used store bought, but the salsas verde on offer were more puree than what I had in mind. I made my own from some poblanos, anaheims, tomatillas, onions, garlic cloves, and a lone jalapeno for spice. Boil those in chicken stock, then whirl the drained peppers in a blender in short bursts until they look like you want them to, then cook them down a bit in a pan with some of the stock added back. Season to taste.
The tortillas were brushed with oil and sprinkled with the Tex-Mex seasoning , then browned in the toaster oven.
Enough talk. Enjoy!
