      OAXACAN HOT CHOCOLATE

      At our restaurant, we like to greet our customers with a bowl of chips, drenched with our signature coloradito mole.  It is always a delight watching our customers faces filled with gratitude and excitement as they dig into that first mole bite.  

      We highly encourage you do the same when welcoming guests into your home.  A mole dip with chips is always a winner

      CHILE PASILLA CHILAQUILES
      

      Our chile pasilla adds the perfect amount of smoke and sublet heat to this chilaquiles recipe.  It is the perfect weekend breakfast for the family.  Serve with fried eggs, or crumbled fresh cheese on top.  The recipe calls for a serrano pepper to up the heat, but feel free to omit if are looking for a milder sauce.

      For the sauce:

      2 dried chile pasillas, stems removed

      1 serrano chile (optional)

      2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

      1 sprig of epazote or parsley

      OAXACA REFRIED BEANS

      OAXACA REFRIED BEANS

      Be warned, that once you make refried beans like these, you’ll never want to eat canned beans ever again.  Use them as a dip with tortilla chips, spread them on your quesadillas or on your next favorite Mexican sandwich.  

      Our secret ingredient is of course our dried avocado leaves.  If you want to crank up the punch, toast them on a hot griddle for a few seconds on each side prior to blending them w the cooked beans.
