Description

Slow-cooked in a dutch oven alongside carrots, leeks, and bay leaves, the chicken at the heart of these enchiladas is tender and flavorful. The chicken is then shredded and added to a mixture of sauteed onions, piquillo peppers, and chipotle sauce for a smoky filling that is sprinkled with cheese and rolled up in a tortilla. The crowning glory of this dish is the chocolate and chili sauce poured over the top of the enchiladas before being covered in cheese and baked until melted and golden.

    Directions

    1. In a Dutch oven, place the chicken thighs, carrot, leek, and bay leaf. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Salt generously, lower the heat, and simmer 40 minutes or until the chicken is done.
    2. Remove the chicken, increase the heat, and simmer until the stock has reduced a bit. Reserve 300 milliliters plus 2 tablespoons of this stock for the sauce.
    3. Make the sauce. In a pot, heat up a drizzle of olive oil and saute the onions in it on low heat. Add the cocoa powder, chili powder (optional), and tomato paste. Stir everything together.
