Servings: 8 people
- 53 oz Tomatillo
- 7 Serrano chiles
- 1 Onion
- 2 Garlic cloves
- Chicken concentrate
- 10 Eggs
- 2 tbsp Wheat flour
- 1 1/2 Onion
- Panela cheese
- Cotija cheese
- Sour cream
Blend all the ingredients of the salsa group. To make it easier you can blend tomatillo last.
Heat a saucepan with oil and add the sauce. Let it boil and check the seasoning.
If the sauce is very thick add broth or more water.
Separate the egg yolks and whites from the eggs.
Using a mixer, beat egg whites until stiff.
Add 1/2 tbsp of salt, 2 tbsp of wheat flour, continue beating and then add the egg yolks. Keep mixing at low speed.
Make the tacos with a piece of panela cheese and some onion slices.
Pass the tacos through the beaten egg and fry in hot oil.
When the tacos are fried, bathe with the green sauce and serve with cotija cheese and sour cream.
- You can also make Indios Desnudos (naked Indians). Follow the same steps without bathing the tacos with eggs.
- You can add chopped onion to serve along with cotija cheese and sour cream.
