Green Chilis in the large can are available at Cash and Carry for a fraction of what they want in the grocery stores.... just over $2 here in North CA.

Will you both come down to Ga and give me cooking lessons or just be my personal chef like Oprah.
Thanks so much.

LindaSue I made your Green Enchilada Sauce w/ Xanthan gum

I raised the brown in the skillet with the broth and thickened it with xanthan gum. I did have a problem with little lumps from the xanthan, but it thickened up with a clear appearance just like corn starch. I thought it tasted wonderful. I added the sour cream, green salsa, and green chilies and thought it tasted horrible But since I had gotten this far went ahead and poured over the pork (I seasoned thin sliced pork loin instead of chicken since that is what I had on hand), sprinkled with Lawry's coarse ground garlic salt, and topped with grated Mexican cheese blend. It turned out wonderful after it was baked--a nice change of taste. My DH and DS loved it and had 3 servings. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe LindaSue

I made the Chile Relleno and it was super. I put it in individual
baking dishes..about 5 of them..DH loved it. I used real
Anaheim Peppers (at Wallie)..ended up boiling them slightly
and they came out great. To cut down on the fat, I also
used 1/2 and 1/2 and it was nice and creamy.

Thanks LindaSue..

Carnitas looks sooooo good - what do you suggest doing with the meat once it's all done? I don't have any low carb tortilla's yet I blew my budget stocking up on meat at Sam's, so a Netrition order will have to wait for a couple of weeks!

We eat ours wrapped in a lettuce leaf, and we actually prefer it over the tortillas!

We had Linda Sue's Green Enchilada Chicken last night and it was delicious.

I wanted this wonderful thread to come back up so that others can try these great recipes.

I want to make the Sherrie's carnitas next. Do you shred the meat after the final browning, or cut it into hunks?

LOL - I think I found my answer when I load the photo. It looks like you shred it, right?

I live in Mexico, so we eat the "real deal." My favorite is Carne en su Jugo:

Carne en su Jugo:

2 lbs of beef sliced thinly and cut into 1 inch pieces (when we lived in the US, I had our butcher at the grocery store do this for me) or ground beef will work as well.
1 lb of bacon cut into pieces
1 lb of fresh tomatillos (canned will do)
4 cloves of garlic
salt to taste
1 handful of cilantro plus some set aside as a garnish
fresh lime
1 diced avocado
1/2 diced onion
your favorite salsa or hot sauce


First cook the bacon and then take it out of the pan and put it in a pot, save the grease. Then cook the beef until brown in your bacon grease and add that to the pot. Make a green stock in your blender using the tomatillos, cilantro, garlic and a little water. Blend. Now add that to the beef and bacon and cook until tender (The original recipe calls for beans in the soup or on the side as a garnish to be added, I omit the beans for lc) Now dish it up and add cilantro, raw chopped onion, avocado and salsa. You will LOVE this! Your friends will be amazed. It was the hit of every potluck I brought this to.

Tomatillo chicken is another favorite here and it is so easy!!!

Tomatillo Chicken

1 whole chicken deboned or use 4 chicken breasts sliced
1 cup of cream
1 lb tomatillos
3-4 cloves fresh garlic
handful of cilantro...about 3 or 4 tbs of just the leaves
salt to taste


Cook your chicken, then blend your tomatillos, cilantro, garlic and cream and pour that over the chicken. Simmer and serve. I used to serve this over cilantro rice, but it is every bit as good without the rice.

Chicken Chipotle is for those lazy people out there and it is soooo good!!

Chicken Chipotle

1 chicken cooked and deboned or 4 breasts sliced thin
1 cup cream
1 small can of Chipotles in Adobado sauce (They sell this in the Mexican section of your grocery store)
1 cup chicken stock
salt
Shredded jack cheese if desired

Cook chicken, dice the chipotle peppers and add half the peppers and the sauce (one can will make 2 dinners), add cream and chicken stock, simmer and reduce. Enjoy with a crisp green salad.

I know this is an old post, but I gotta share my favorite also. It is a tweaked version of one of Lindasue's. My DH love this and he doesn't low carb. I call it

Jalepeno Chicken

Sprinkle chicken breast with taco seasoning and bake. I use boneless, skinless.

When nearly done, I mix about 3 ounces of cream cheese with about 1/4 cup of pacante sauce and poor over the chicken breast.

Then I sprinkle the top with mexican blend shredded cheese by Kraft and put it back into the oven until melted.

I have also used sour cream in place of the cream cheese. I've also just spooned cream cheese and sour cream over it and placed sliced jalepeno's over the top then topped with grated cheese.

This is really easy and you can tweak it sooo many ways!!!
