Mooby-Que Sauce

Submitted by punch_it_chewie
Yields 2-3 cups


1 can tomato sauce 1 can tomato paste
2 tbsp olive oil 2 tbsp vinegar
¼ c. molasses 2 tbsp brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, crushed 4 tbsp red or white onion, minced
2 tbsp red pepper, minced 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cumin 1 tsp chipotle chili pepper


  1. Cook the garlic, onion, & red pepper until it’s soft, & then add all the rest of the ingredients. 
  2. Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. Keep stirring it often so it doesn’t burn, then refrigerate for a few days before you use it. This allows the flavors to blend & mellow. 
  3. The cumin & chipotle chili pepper can be substituted by any of your favorite spices.

Puebla Chicken and Potato Stew

Chicken Stew Mexican Style by Lynda Giddens on FlickrAlso called Tinga Poblana de Pollo y Papas
Submitted by Americo
Serves 6-8


2 lbs. chicken thighs (with skin & bone) 6 c. water
1 large white onion, quartered 2 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves, unpeeled 14 oz. whole tomatoes in juice (1 can)
4 tsp Chipotle chilies in adobo (chopped, canned) 1 tsp dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 ½ oz. dried Spanish chorizo, finely chopped (1 link)
1 lb. boiling potatoes 2 oz. queso fresco, crumbled (½ c.)
avocado corn tortillas


  1. Bring chicken, water, 2 onion quarters, & 1 tsp salt to a boil, covered, in a 4-5 qt. pot over moderately high heat.  Boil 10 minutes, then remove from heat & let stand, covered, until chicken is just cooked through, about 10 minutes.  Transfer chicken to a plate, reserving broth with onion.  When cool enough to handle, coarsely shred chicken, discarding skin & bones.
  2. While chicken is cooking, heat a dry well-seasoned small cast iron skillet over moderate heat until hot, then brown garlic & remaining 2 onion quarters on all sides, turning with tongs, about 5 minutes.  Peel garlic & transfer with onion to a blender.  Add tomatoes with juice, chilies, & oregano, then puree until smooth.
  3. Cook chorizo (spicy cured pork sausage) in oil in a 12″ heavy skillet over moderately high heat, stirring, until fat is rendered, about 2 minutes.  Carefully add puree (it will splatter & steam) & cook, stirring frequently, until thick, about 10 minutes.
  4. Peel potatoes & cut into ¾” pieces, then add to reserved broth with remaining salt.  Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are almost tender, about 10 minutes.  Add potatoes & onions to chorizo mixture along with 2 cups broth.  Stir in chicken & simmer 10 minutes.  Serve sprinkled with cheese.  Garnish with avocado slices & warm corn tortillas, if desired.

Chef’s Note: Ricotta salata or farmer cheese can be substituted for queso fresco.  The remainder of the chicken broth not used can be saved for later use.
