I've got the blues


B
lue corn, chicken and cheese enchiladas kind of blues. Blue corn meal has been a part of my life since I was a kid in New Mexico, I like it mixed into pancake batter, I like in a quesadilla, I just like it. I dont usually make the casserole version like this but I did not feel like making them to order, so make a big pan and scoop it out like a lasagna, lazy easiness.



Fried quickly then stuffed with cooked chicken and a mix of monterey jack, cheddar and queso de oaxaca, rolled up for layer number one.



Repeat for layer number two.



Cover in green chile sauce.




More cheese on top and bake until bubbly.




This is a portion cut out after it is completely cooled so you can see the twists and turns of the delicious layers. If you dont finish this all off in one sitting it is great the next day.

ap said...

Atole was the only thing I could eat for three weeks after my kids were born, but I haven't eaten it since... post partem depression... talk about blues!!!

Anette said...

What I can learn here in The Doghouse! I've never seen blue corn. The dish looks very tasty and interesting, yet a bit scary and can I say slightly macho.

Emily said...

Ohhh yeah. The blue corn, cheddar, salsa verde. That's just f-ing brilliant. I'd be all over these.

chef e: lets see, a dollar thirty nine for a pack of who knows how many are in 30 ounces - and six dollars to mail them ...hmmmmmmmmmmmm

5 star: maybe I should get in the import/export business - I could be a tortilla traffic-er

harmony: you should be able to find some

deb: you would be so welcome to dive in and dive deep...you are so cute! I love when you have a little wine.....

ap: I love atole but I didnt like it so much as a kid, my grandma made it lumpy

anette: Macho food, how cool.

emily: you know what time it is!

pigpigscorner: there is yellow corn, white corn, red corn and blue corn... http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/proceedings1993/v2-228.html

beth: this would not last past your amazon kid, I would need to make 3 or 4 more batches just like this!

ap said...

My mom was a Master with hot cereals, maybe because she made them a lot. I could use a bowl of atole right now.......

buffalodick said...

You don't see a lot of blue food, but it's out there...

Real Live Lesbian said...

Ok...send some of those leftovers my way! That looks great!

snugs said...

that looks so damn good..you can get blue corn tortillas there? I live in the land of hispanics and I can't even get those..I didn't even know they made those and now I WANT some!

mikky said...

this is quite interesting... and btw, i love your hat collections... :)

Marjie said...

That is one strange color for food. Interesting, though.

TavoLini said...

that looks good! I'm much lazier with my enchilada casserole--I don't even bother to roll the tortillas ;)

Green chiles are a good idea, too.

Mo Diva said...

Wow. That's got to be the most yummiest looking enchilada ever! Niiiice.

duodishes said...

Blue corn chip nachos. Sweet. Blue corn, chicken and cheese enchiladas. Sweeter!

ap: my mom was ok but I stayed a lot at my grandparents so I was a victim of her cooking, she is part of why I learned to cook at a young age

buff: thats a good observation

RLL: long time no see, I think they would get pilfered in the mail

snugs: this is the big apple - we have everything!

mikky: I sell these hats, as much as it looks like a collection I am trying to get rid of them

marjie: it looks like slate or some metalic color I know - they are more blue/purple before cooking

tavolini: I like to roll them it reminds me of the non-hispanic family that lived next door - they made these kinds of casseroles (did I just sound racist accidentally)

mo diva: you should see when I make them individual to order...

duodishes: I needed some military precision with this format...LOL

Muneeba said...

Those are the best looking enchiladas I've ever seen. Honest - I've never been too attracted to the whole smothered-in-red-sauce type. THESE look right up my alley!

The Other Tiger said...

I love that cross section pic!

Jessica said...

I want to eat lots of this. Are you making the blue corn torillas by hand? If so, whats the recipe/method?

Tanya Kristine said...

thought it was a black & white photo till you added the salsa and cheese.

Creative Mish said...

I'm sure they taste fabulous. But that grayish blue.. hhhmm just doesn't look very appetizing to me
