Panuchos

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine chicken and Chiltomate Sauce. Cook and stir until heated through.

Instructions Checklist
  • Spread fried tortillas with Frijoles Colados. Top with chicken mixture, Cebollas Encurtidas, and avocado.

Fresh or Fast:

Fresh: Make as directed. Fast: Use a 16-ounce can refried black beans (heated through) instead of Frijoles Colados. Omit Cebollas Encurtidas and garnish instead with thinly sliced cucumber and/or radishes.

*

Instead of using cooked chicken, you can make the poached turkey from Sopa de Lima. Discard the broth or reserve it for another use.

Chile Hint:

In the Yucatan, they put habañeros in almost everything, but they pack a lot of heat, so feel free to limit them. In this recipe, for instance, put them in the Frijoles Colados but not in the Chiltomate Sauce.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, cook onion and habañero in hot oil over medium heat for 6 minutes or until tender. Add bean mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thickened to a loose paste consistency. Season to taste with salt.

*

Because hot chile peppers, such as habañeros, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until onions are charred and tender, turning once halfway through broiling time.
