Cooking Time: 30 minutes

 This great dish is made with USA high-quality peanuts and is a perfect dinner for two. You’ll love the peanutty sizzle!


¾ cup (175 mL) peanuts

2 poblano hot peppers, roasted and peeled

¼ onion

1 garlic clove

1 cup (250 mL) milk

1 cup (250 mL) cream

cooking oil

12 small tortillas

1 chicken breast, cooked and minced

1 cup (250 mL) grated fresh cheese


Blend peanuts with the hot peppers, onion, garlic and cream until you get a sauce, as smooth as possible; pour into a heavy pot where you had previously warmed up a tablespoon of oil; cook at low heat until the sauce boils. If the sauce is very thick, add milk slowly until its consistency is lighter.

Quickly fry the tortillas in oil to prevent them from hardening; soak each of the tortillas in the sauce and fill with minced chicken, place in individual dishes and soak them with more hot sauce when serving. Garnish with grated cheese.
