Chilebrown at home

Tuesday, August 12, 2008


Mad Meat Genuis is going to share a recipe with you that I really do not recommend trying. The way I prepared it has put me in the Dog House. I am posting this from the neighbors. The actual meal is very good if you do not mind eating it by yourself. Let's cut to the chase. This is a Chile and Chicken Mole recipe with a Chilebrown twist. You just have to make sure that you do not use the twist that I used.

  1. 1 chicken with the back cut out and flattened
  2. 6 dried chiles (2 Anaheim,2 chipotle 2 pasilla)
  3. 3 cloves garlic
  4. 1 onion sliced into thirds
  5. 3 cups of chicken broth
  6. 2 corn tortillas
  7. 1/4 cup of rub
  8. salt & pepper to taste
  9. 4 peppers to taste (Hot and Sweet from the garden)
  10. 2 slices of bacon
  11. 1 teaspoon cumin and oregano
  12. 1 teaspoon sugar
  13. 3 tomatoes

Rub the chicken with rub and set aside. Take a Cast Iron Skillet and lay all ingredients except chicken,spices,sugar and broth on bottom of pan. Lay the chicken on top, skin side up, on the vegetable tortilla chile mixture

Build a medium hot fire in a Weber. Lay the coals evenly throughout the kettle. Place the Cast Iron Pan in the middle of the grate. Put the lid on with all vents open and cook for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, remove chicken and reserve. Take all the ingredients in the bottom of the skillet and place them in a food processor.


The next step is how to get in trouble with your wife. I do not recommend this to anybody. Place all the Hot ingredients in a food processor. Add a little broth and let it whirl. WARNING step back. This sucker is going to blow. The ingredients spun for 20 seconds and all of a sudden the lid came off and sprayed the kitchen and Myself with hot liquid. It is a good thing that I was wearing my safety sunglasses. This was not a pretty site. There was liquid all over the kitchen. The ceiling, walls, stove, refrigerator, dogs and the floor were covered with food. I went outside and told Ms. Goofy what had happened. I have been outside ever since. I heard dinner was pretty good from what was salvaged. I will tell you the rest of the recipe, but be careful.

Add broth and vegetables to processor. Place mixture back in pan and simmer. Cut chicken into 8 pieces and add to simmering mixture. Add your spices,sugar and cook for 15 minutes. Serve over rice and enjoy if you are not in the Doghouse. Can I come over to your house to shower?, Please!

Well, the dinner looked pretty good once it was finished and I noticed there were two plates so at least she's not starving you out there!

Zoomie, You always hear from the shows,books,etc, to be careful of hot liquids in a blender/processor. If you ever experience it, You will be sorry.
Luckily, Cookiecrumb offered to share her bacon, and pears was a peace treaty for my transgressions.
I have takin a shower since.
Thanks for coming by
