  • Prep Time: 0 hours
  • Cook Time: 0 hours
  • Total Time: 0 hours

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 dried mulato chilies
  • 4 dried pasilla chilies
  • 1 tbsp. or more as needed melted beef fat (strongly preferred), lard or vegetable oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic – roasted on a comal or griddle until lightly blackened, then peeled
  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled
  • 3 roundish heirloom tomatoes – roasted on a comal or griddle until lightly blackened, left unpeeled and cores removed
  • 2 fresh epazote leaves
  • 3 tbsp. minced white onion
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. dark brown sugar or piloncillo
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 5 tbsp. beer (not a dark or brown beer)
  • 2 tbsp. white tequila
  • 1 tbsp. decent mezcal (if you don’t want the smoky flavor, substitute beer instead)
  • ¾ cup panella cheese, cut into a small dice (¼-inch or less)
  • Minced Cilantro leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a sauté pan over moderate heat, lightly cook the mulato chilies in fat or oil. As soon as they turn a brighter shade of red, turn them to repeat the process on all sides of the chilies. Do not overcook or they will become bitter. Remove pan heat and let cool. Then, remove the seeds and reserve.
  2. Place the pasilla chilies in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until softened. Remove the chilies and reserve.
  3. In a molcajete or mortar and pestle, grind up the epazote and garlic to a paste. If you don’t have either, you can also make this in a blender.
  4. Add onion and grind.
  5. Add the mulato chilies and grind. Then add the pasilla chilies and grind.
  6. Add tomato and salt and grind.
  7. Add pineapple juice, beer, tequila, mezcal and brown sugar.
  8. Gently stir in the cheese and cilantro and serve.
