sliced serrano chilies, wedges of lime
and crispy matchstick tortillas

FIRE ROASTED CHILE RELLANOS

Mexican dish made with mild poblano chili peppers that
are fire roasted, then stuffed with Monterey jack cheese,
dipped in eggs and flour, deep-fried in hot oil until crispy
golden outside with gooey melted cheese inside,
served with homemade salsa roja red sauce

ingredients that are simmered, then pureed smooth,
served over char grilled chicken thighs,
garnished with sesame seeds and cilantro sprigs

PUEBLA MOLE SAUCE
– a good mole recipe contains over 20 ingredients,

for optimum flavor, then toast our aromatic ingredients, anise,
almonds, sesame seeds, cloves and cinnamon, sauté onions and garlic,
add chopped tomatoes, torn tortillas, chicken broth, honey,
tomato puree and unsweetend chocolate, then puree into a
sauce that is traditionally served over chicken but
also with enchiladas, tacos and burritos!
