    Torejas and Chilli Colorado

    I never did get around to whipping up a fried egg sandwich. Next to the otter egg sandwich with the english bacon mine would be shit. Fk that was some killer bacon.
    So I'm making torejas and chilli colorado. It's a basic recipe from New Mexico which my aunt cooks up. What's nice about torejas is they soak up the juice of chilli colorado or anything else you serve them with.

    For the chilli colorado I'm using a pound of elk meat, seven cloves of garlic and five tablespoons of powdered new mexico chilli with 2 1/4 cups water and some olive oil because the meat is too lean to fry on its own. Normally I throw the chilli powder, garlic and water in a blender but the blender is broken so I'll fry the garlic with the meat.


    Oops the garlic got a bit brown. Next comes the meat.



    I'll mix the chilli powder and water and when the meat is ready I'll add it to the pan,



    and I'll turn down the heat and let it simmer for an hour.

    That's it.


    The torejas are made by separating the whites from the yolks. I usually tilt the the shell and roll it till all the white ends up in the bowl.



    Next beat the whites for about 4 minutes.



    Then beat the yolks and slowly add them to the whites while beating the mixture. If you add the yolks too fast the whole thing will collapse and that's not what we want.



    Next add the torejas mixture to a pan with olive oil in it. It takes no more than 30 seconds on each side using an electric stove set at (medium) 5. They'll fluff up while cooking and then settle down once you plate them up.



    The finished product.



    So there you have it. I don't make them often but I think they would go well with asian food. Maybe some chopped chives in the mixture. Hmmm...

    Fuck the elk meat! Bring some of that New Mexico Chili powder with you when you come over!
    Looks great, Think I'll have to teach the ol lady how to whip the eggs though.

    Yup bring kilos of chili powder you can sell it all to us. Habanero sauce as well.

    I guarantee anything you bring that has to do with Mexican cuisine you can sell at a nice profit as well.
