Corn & bean
for quesadillas, enchiladas, probably ok for tamales too
started out as something to use up some odds and ends in my fridge, but
was tasty enough that I kept the recipe.
1 C cooked beans
I have used fresh limas (about 1# before shelling), frozen limas, or a
half cup of dried black beans, soaked & simmered in the stock with
some bay leaves & epazote; canned beans would probably also be fine
1 C stock--chicken or vegetable stock work fine
small onion, chopped finely
1 t olive oil
1/2 chipotle chile, seeded, soaked in hot water, chopped
1 t cumin powder
1 t sweet paprika
3 C kernels of corn, cut from about 4 ears
1/2 t salt
1 C sweet, ripe pepper, chopped
1/2C fresh cheese, like cottage cheese, or better yet, a nice mild goat
Saute the onion in the olive oil. When it is is translucent, add
the pepper, cumin, and paprika and saute a little more.
Add the bean and stock and simmer a few minutes.
Stir in the corn, salt, and peppers, and simmmer a couple of minutes
more to cook the corn. Stir in the cheese, simmer a bit to warm
through (and break up the cheese if needed), and adjust seasonings to
Slap between tortillas for quesadillas, roll up, sacue, & bake for
enchiladas, or just scoop up with tortillas or tortilla chips.
