This subtle blend of chocolate and chile is from Puebla, where it is known as the “National Dish of Mexico” when it is served over turkey. This sauce adds life to any kind of poultry, from roasted game hens to a simple grilled chicken breast. It is also excellent as a sauce over chicken enchiladas.
When chile growers Joe and Martha Lujan of Las Cruces, New Mexico were kind enough to show Harald and his wife Renate around their chile fields and roasting facility, Martha fixed them this tasty snack. Joe had just roasted a batch of green chiles, and Martha took some to the kitchen, stuffed them with Longhorn cheese, wrapped them in a tortilla and heated them in the microwave.
