Dem Bones are great Halloween party treat that can be eaten with just a paper
- 2/3 cup peanut oil
- 2 tablespoons chile powder
- 2 tablespoons Spanish paprika
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 cups yellow onions, finely diced
- 2 pounds Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 pound roasted Anaheim peppers, chopped
- 6 ounces black olives, chopped
- 30 corn tortillas *
* Additional tortillas are called for since quite often some tortillas are broken
or dried out and are difficult to use.
- Sauce: In a shallow bowl mix the sauce ingredients, whip with a whisk or hand blender.
- Stuffing: Combine the stuffing ingredients in a stainless steel bowl.
- Microwave the wrapped tortillas for 30 to 40 seconds. This will soften them
and make them pliable.
- Dredge a tortilla through the sauce, then place about a 1/4 cup of stuffing
on top of the sauced tortilla. Roll the tortilla into the traditional enchilada
- Place the enchilada widthwise and 2 abreast on a parchment lined 1/2 size
- When finished spread any additional sauce on top of the "bones".
- The tray can be wrapped with film and refrigerated for future use.
- When ready to serve, bake uncovered in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven when done and allow to cool to the touch.
Yield: 24-26 enchiladas
Alternate Method: 1/4 cup jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (for a spicier stuffing)
Plate Presentation: Use a "Jack-o-Lantern" for a head and arrange the "bones"
as ribs on a serving tray
