Crêpes… I love crêpes. I always keep a stack of them in the freezer. So tonight, when I pulled them out to thaw for dinner, I looked in the freezer to see what I could throw into them. Chicken breasts, garbanzo beans, summer sun ripened tomatoes I had diced and frozen… mmm. Then I looked in the fridge and pulled out some leftover diced green chilies, fresh cilantro, heavy cream and cheddar cheese…
6 -8 crêpes, 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 Tbsp. minced onions, 1/4 tequila, 1 c. diced green chilies, 2 c. diced tomatoes, 2 c. garbanzo beans, 1 Tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro, 2 c. cheddar cheese, 1 c. heavy cream
Warm oil in skillet and add onions. Brown chicken and cook until no longer pink on inside. Add tequilla and chilies and simmer. Add tomatoes and garbanzos and simmer. Drain liquid and reserve, keep chicken mixture warm. In a small sauce pot, add 2 c. liquid, heavy cream, cilantro and cheddar cheese. Heat over medium low heat stirring constantly until well combined. Fill crêpes with chicken mixture and top with cheddar sauce. Serve hot.
