CHILIS IN ESCABECHE
(Chiles en Escabeche)
6 poblano chiles (poblano peppers)
1/2 cup of vinegar
1 red onion, thinly sliced
5 cloves of garlic, halved
1 carrot thinly sliced
2 cups of cooked beans
3 oz. of sausage
1 medium, peeled, chopped tomato
1 white onion, finely chopped
1 piece of queso añejo (Romano or dry Ricotta Cheese, cheese may be substituted)
1/2 lb. of panela, cut into chunks
12 leaves of romaine lettuce
3 soup spoons of oil
Toast the chiles (peppers) and clean them. Put them in hot oil in a frying pan and cover them so they "sweat" for 5 minutes. Take them out and drain them.
To make the escabeche or pickle sauce, fry the garlic and red onion together, add the carrot, the vinegar and two table spoons of water. Add salt and boil on low flame for two minutes. Drain.
For the filling, mash the beans in the same juice they were cooked in. Peel and break up the sausage and fry for 5 minutes. Drain. Fry the chopped white onion in the same grease and add to the tomato. Season. Add the mashed beans and the sausage. Continue frying, stirring so that it doesn't stick to the frying pan. When it thickens, turn off the flame. Let cool a little and add the queso añejo.
Open the chilis on one side. Take out the veins and seeds and fill them with the beans.
Place the chilis on lettuce leaves dressed with vinegar. Place a chunk of panela on each chile and dress them with the escabeche.
