A vegetarian twist on my mom’s super stacked tacos. Be prepared for random cravings for these Tempeh Tacos!

• Tempeh
• 1 T olive oil
• 2 T soy sauce
• 1/2 Cup water
• Taco seasoning ( I like Bearitos)
• Onion
• Corn Chips or Blue Tortilla Chips
• Tomato (chopped)
• Mango (Cubed)
• Sour cream
• Guacamole or chopped avocado
• Lime

Crumble tempeh (I put mine in a food processor for a few seconds for smaller crumbles) and saute in olive oil and toss with 2 soy sauce for 3-4 min, till browned. Add water and taco seasoning to taste ( I like Bearitos). Cook another 2 min.

Assemble tacos in this order: Chips, tempeh, tomato, mango, sour cream, guacamole or chopped avocado and a spirt of lime!

  1. Chile rellenos are NEVER made from jaaenlpo peppers, but from either poblano or Anaheim chiles which are milder in flavor.Chiles Rellenos: Chiles rellenos are made of Chile Poblano (Ancho) or Anaheim chiles, with skins removed, dipped in batter, stuffed with cheese or meat and covered with lightly spiced red sauce. Blistering fresh chiles is one of the tricks of the Mexican food Cooking.Tips for filling Chiles RellenosFillings can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, then brought to room temperature before stuffing chiles.Fillings should be at room temperature or slightly chilled. If fillings are hot, the juices will flow out and cause the coating to slide off.Use enough filling to stuff each chile relleno as completely as possible, but not so much that the seam won’t hold together.Chiles Rellenos: Chiles rellenos are made of Chile Poblano (Ancho) or Anaheim chiles, with skins removed, dipped in batter, stuffed with cheese or meat and covered with lightly spiced red sauce.

Rinse the chiles.2. Preheat your oven to broil.3. Place the chiles in a 9 x 14 baking dish and place on the top shelf of your oven.4. Watch and listen closely. When the skins start to make popping sounds and to char and turn black in places, take the chiles out and flip them over. Be sure and use a potholder so you don’t burn your hands!5. When both sides are fairly evenly charred, remove them from the oven.6. Wrap each chile in a moist paper towel or place in a sealed plastic bag to steam.7. After a few minutes, check them. Once the skin comes off easily, peel each chile.8. Cut a slit almost the full length of each chile. Make a small t across the top, by the stem. Pull out fibers and seeds (this is where the heat is) and replace with a slice of cheese. You can set these aside, for a few minutes or a few hours if you put them in the refrigerator.9. Whip the egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer, until stiff peaks have formed.10. Heat the oil in a skillet until a drop of water sizzles when dropped into the pan.11. Beat the egg yolks with one tablespoon flour and salt. Mix the yolks into egg whites and stir until you have a thick paste.12. Roll the chiles in 1/4 cup flour and dip each one in the egg batter. Coat evenly. Fry, seam side down on both sides until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain.13. Meanwhile, heat the salsa in a medium saucepan (either one or some of each). Place one or two Rellenos on each plate and pour salsa over them. Serve them immediately and brace yourself for major compliments!This web site offers a video demonstrating how to make them.Buena suerte!!Manuel
